Try the following

Declare Function GetDesktopWindow Lib "user32" Alias "GetDesktopWindow" () As Long

Declare Function EnableWindow Lib "user32" Alias "EnableWindow" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal fEnable As Long) As Long

dim hwndDSK as long
hwndDSK = GetDesktopWindow
screen.mousepointer = vbHourglass
enablewindow hwndDSK, 0
load form1
enablewindow hwndDSK, 1
screen.mousepointer = vbDefault
