If I wanted to detect calls made to the User32.dll by another application, how would I do this?

Lets say I am waiting for a specific call to the dll but do not know from where it would come.
If this API call is directed at this dll I want to be able to listen for calls like the CallNextHookEx or the FindWindow call.

If this call is made I want to be able to catch it before the dll reacts to it. If I catch it I want to be able to kill this call and not allow it to go through.

I know that I have to create a hook but I there is anyone out there that can use an example of how this is to be done I would be ever so happy!!

Thank you.
Horatio

I've developed similar programm. But the programm hooks API from kernel.dll and only for one application.
But i think it can be registered as global hook.
