how to superpose a little message in a directx game based?

i am building an aplication for a cybercoffee in vb 6.0 and i need to supperpose a message on the game screen telling users they have only 3 minutes to use that game, after that the copmuter will logoff.

if i try to send a message via visual basic it takes the control of the window and the people who is playing become dead.

the idea is send the message to the users without losing the control of their game or any application they are using.

please help,

thanks a lot,

Oscar.
