How can I detect that a new program was launched?

Hi, I'd like to know when a new program starts and do something with
it's window, how can I do it?

What message do I have to catch? WM_CREATE doesn't seem to work
because it fires only for the program itself, or which function should
I hook with SetWindowsHook... any suggestions please?
