How does windows translate mouse movement to moving the mouse cursor.

464 Expert 256MB
I am trying to find how windows translate the input from a HID device to an actual windows message; specifically, the mouse. I am trying to figure out how when the mouse moves the process windows takes in order to ensure all windows receive the notification that the mouse moved and how windows moves the mouse cursor. What process handles the movement of the mouse cursor and at what point does windows move the mouse cursor vs posting the messages to the various windows. I am trying to figure out a way through code to prevent the mouse cursor from moving. i have tried a lot of different items and haven't found a way to do so.

I have tried google, but I have a feeling I'm not using the right keywords.

*note* I am trying to figure this out due to this issue http://bytes.com/topic/c-sharp/answe...-message-wpf-c
