If this is possible you would need to write a DLL to allow a Windows message hook.  You would need to know the class name for the little red X, that would let you know if it was the right section.  You would be able to tell that you had a WM_MOUSEDOWN message.  Here is a link explaining Windows hooks, you would need a global hook.  The link has downloadable source code.

The link I provided does have demo source.  Due to the act that it is posted on a commercial web site I should not copy it here.  If you have questions on the soure they give you, let me know.
