Software to monitor a CPU usage and RAM usage of a process?

I am looking for a program (that is free) to measure the usage of RAM when the program is running. I am using Windows XP. If there is a duplicate question here I have missed it please point me the right direction.

Note: This question: Software to monitor a CPU usage and RAM usage of a process? is close but I cannot see RAM usage or am I missing something?

The program that would be the best would be able to track RAM usage from when launched. Then I could use a programs like I normally do and see the RAM usage over the entire process.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Look in the "Working Set" column; that's the memory usage. Also... what's wrong with the normal Task Manager? (Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc) – nhinkle Sep 17 '11 at 5:52

Sysinternals' Process Explorer will do what you want. If you look for the Working Set column, that will reflect the pages the process has mapped into memory.
