Most events in windows are in the form of messages. you can use the IMessageFilter interface to capture all messages. Here's an example of how you can use the IMessageFilter interface:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemwindowsformsapplicationclassaddmessagefiltertopic.asp

note that the method IMessageFilter.PreFilterMessage filters the messages as soon as they leave the message queue and before they are sent to the destination control.

hope this helps..

You can also use the NativeWindow class to process all messages. here's an article that will get you going on how to use this class to process window messages:

http://www.vbaccelerator.com/home/NET/Code/Libraries/Windows_Messages/Subclassing_in__NET/article.asp

The difference here is that in this the messages are intercepted only after they've been dispatched to the appropriate window.


Also take a look at this article which I think might help:
