Good Alternatives to Windows Task Manager

Is there a good task manager or utility for Windows XP that gives deep visibility into the processes and threads running on the current system? I know that the task manager on my Windows 7 PC has a lot more information than does Windows XP. Any ideas?

Process Explorer

This is what I use when I need something better than the built-in XP task manager

+1 and I'll add that I use this in XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server*, etc. –  Mark Allen Jun 17 '10 at 20:53
This is what I always use. I checked the box that uses ImageFileExecutionOptions to make Process Explorer launch instead of the builtin Task Manager. –  SamB Jun 17 '10 at 23:23

Yes, Process Explorer is the best one

Use also Autoruns, that show processes that runs in startup
