I want to create a program which detect when a file is opened, closed, seeked. For example take a look at the application File Monitor.
So my program must listen over the file system and detect when some program open file. Also need to see the Handle of this application!
Any ideas?

For the record, WaitForSingleObject can wait for changes in directories. Haven't tried it myself, but could be useful if you really wan't to code the thing yourself.
