I'm looking a some software that will show me any and all files that are being accessed, modified, created, etc... in real time on my HDD. I don't know what to even look for. Process Explorer didn't help.

Running on Windows 7

Going to need an operating system here (htop, top also show that info) – soandos Nov 2 '12 at 15:44

The Sysinternals tool Process Monitor from Technet works for me.
