Detecting window Application startup and closing event

Hi Experts,

Is there a way in C# 2005 that I can detect the startup and closing event of all running windows applications?

For example, when my C# 2005 application is running, it can monitor other running windows application.  It can detect that the user has invoked a window application or shutted down a window application.

C# functions, Win32 API, guidelines, and brief sample code are very much appreciated

Thank you!

I would think that you might be able to use WMI to detect the creation and deletion of a process, and determine what the application is associated with the process.
