Hooking up ShellExecute with SetWindowsHookEx()

Does anyone have actually used SetWindowsHookEx() to hook upShellExecute() so as to find what application was started bywindows or which folder is currently browsed by explorer. I knowone thing and that is ... Windows uses ShellExecute() to doalmost every task.
I need some implementation help. I want to trigger an userdefined function when suppose Notepad is opened or in simplecase a messagebox that says Notepad has started.
If anyone has a better solution, other than setting a hook toShellExecute pls. inform. Any kind of help will always beappreciated. Pls. keep the implementation in vb.net or C#.
