Have you ever been working on your computer and all the sudden you hear your hard drive working hard.  Has your computer just slowed down for 30 seconds and then gone back to normal.  Well if it has and your running Windows Vista you now have a great free tool from Microsoft to help you track down what processes are running.  The tool is called Process Explorer an the most current version is 11.04.  Process explorer will have two different windows.  The top one shows the current running processes.  the bottom mode can show different things depending on which mode it is in.  This application is great for tracking down errors and for finding out what is currently happening on your computer.  You can download this program at www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/ProcessesAndThreads/ProcessExplorer.mspx
