hook missing messages

I have made a hook to retrieve window messages, mush like Spy++. One difference I have noted is that Spy++ gets an unknown 0x0118 message which a google search I found it to possibly be a WM_SYSTIMER used for caret blinks.
Anyway, I have tried a number of hooks and none seem to catch this message. I have tried WH_CALLWNDPROC, WH_CALLWNDPROCRET as well as subclassing every window in the target app, still nothing. Does anyone know how I could possibly catch this, and any other messages like it I may be missing?

doh my bad
I was using..
      CWPRETSTRUCT* MSG;
      MSG = (CWPRETSTRUCT*)lParam;

thats only specific to WNDProc, the SYS proc is just a plain MSG structure pointer so I was getting bad messages.

I'm stupid, thanks for your help
