"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Setting top most form won't stop user from accessing other windows. Use ShowDialog() instead of Show() and the user would not be able to interact with any other part of app unless they close the form.

2) Very generic question  and the answer is use a Timer. Be more specific if you need more specific answer.
