If there is an undocumented hook, I’m not willing to tell you what it is :-)

I will, but meanwhile, isn't there a sane way to implement microphone 
protection? Ideally, I'd like to support Windows 7 and up. I can resort to 
undocumented hooks, but I prefer to avoid this path.

There’s no API to be able to audit failed attempts by other apps to access the

a good feature request – can you file it in Feedback Hub?

If I disable the microphone using the group policy rule, is there a
way for me to detect when a program tries to access the microphone, so
I can show a notification to the user?
