I want my program to be notified when an IE windows opens on the PC without constantly polling using a timer. I know there is a way to "hook" into IE so that it will notify my program. Points will be generous!.

As far as I know you cannot hook into IE with managed code. With .Net you must create an application that polls to check when one window has been opened.

Maybe there is a way calling extenal funcions (WindowsAPI and that kind of stuff) but I can't help in that way.

I guess the correct term would be a Browser Helper Object or BHO.
Does anyone know of any tutorials on how to create these in VB.net?
Or is that just not possible?
