Developing low-level apps in Vista (System Hooks or other things to look for)?

Hi,

I'm in the process of developing some high-level specs for an
application. Some of the functionality of this application involves
intercepting Windows access to certain applications or websites, much
like a "Net Nanny" would restrict children from accessing certain
video games or adult websites. In my very limited experience, System
Hooks and Win32 coding could be used to accomplish this in XP. I had
a lot of trouble learning what libraries to look at even for XP, but I
couldn't even get my feet off the ground when it came to Vista.

I'm curious if you have advice regarding languages (be they .NET
Framework or other), libraries, links, or even books for the
development of such an application. If you were building a firewall,
virus scanner, net nanny, or other low-level application that works in
Vista (or even XP), what would you recommend exploring? I'm open
minded as I'm only at the research stage of this project.

Thank you for any advice you could offer to this developer novice.
