What you will need to do is write a system message hook for the mouse and keyboard messages. This hook must live in the DLL and brought to life by an EXE by using SetWindowsHookEx().

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/msj and download the source files for June 1997. Look at the code for Under the Hood. This has a start of what you're looking for.
