I have put together an interactive quiz for a local school. A slide is presented with a question and 4 answers the childred need to choose 1 allowing the game to progress. Part of each slide is a countdown from 9-0 timed with a number(shape) displayed and faded out as the next number arrives. It runs fine on my home computer(XP) and 1 of the 3 school machines(2000) but on the 2 (97) computers during the slideshow and in particular during the countdown the cursor disappears and is difficult to get back, each new number hides the cursor.

Can I
a) keep the cursor on display all the time
