Need Disk Monitoring Utility

I am in need of a "disk monitor". I have a laptop that just beats on the hard drive to the point nothing runs. The CPU usage is fine but something is continually writing to the disk. I tried SysInternals diskmon but get and error about access denied when running it.

   Is there such a utility that will tell me what is beating up the hard drive?

Task Manager and Performance just shows four instances of "System" continually writing to the hard drive. That isn't quite enough to go on.
