Can/should I use Detours for Hooking an external application with VB.Net?

I've never written a hook before but I have read up on the topic.  What I'm trying to do from my VB.net application is to add a hook for an external application.   For example, say I was trying to write a hook that would prevent Notepad.exe from being closed.  So I'm wondering if I could use Detours from VB.net to accomplish this, or even if I should?
