Vista refuses to run Netstat -b

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
I am seeing a ton of hard drive activity, even when I have zero applications open and I am not doing any syncing or backups. I was logged in as admin, opened a DOS prompt and typed "netstat -b" The error message read, "The requested operation requires elevation."

netstat runs with the -a, -o, -e and -n qualifiers, but NOT -b.

Any suggestions?
netstat -b
