Hard disc permanently accessed, how can I find the process?

My system shows hard disc activity right after booting/logging in and never stops. I was able to countermeasure it already with disabling the Windows Search service, but still it seems the disc is accessed to much.

"Download and use Process Explorer.

Invaluable tool.

svchost.exe is a hosting process for services, and can host more than one. Process explorer will help to isolate which one."

"I much prefer Anvir Task Manager over PE, a far more accurate and detailed system resource usage monitor (even the free variant) - the Swiss Army Knife for techie's toolbox. :)

There is also a portable version available."
