Ideally, I'd like to hear of an application to show how much bandwidth each application is consuming on my local Windows PC. Alternatively, instructions to use any other application for this purpose. The simpler the better. Something that works for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (if possible).

Any ideas? Thanks.

Check out NetLimiter. The free Monitor version does everything you want.

I just use the built-in Performance Monitor to check total network bytes used by a particular process.

Just type Win+R to bring up the Run menu, and type in perfmon. Look in the Network section.
