Count keystrokes from other applications

Hi group!

I want to make a windows service application that counts all the
keystrokes a user does on the computer.

Can anyone give me a hint on how i can detect those keystrokes when they
are in another application then the counting application itself?

Thanks in advance

Does not seem to be supported by the .Net Framework, but it looks like
it can be done via windows hooks with API calls.
