Utility to track down memory and hard drive use?

Besides the task manager, is there a utility that better identifies all the processes that are currently running and how much memory they're using as well as what processes are accessing the hard drive?

Have you tried sysinternals

filemon or process monitor?

On your suggestions, I can't run filemon (not for Vista) and while I can run process monitor, it shows every event that's occurred (over a million & counting) - is there a way to have it show me only processes that are currently running?  Also, it doesn't appear to show memory consumption for each process.

Perhaps process explorer would be better suited to your environment:
