sar is nice when you can get it.

It certainly is more difficult with the default columns that Task
Manager/Processes shows. You do know, however, that you can add
additional columns to the Task Manager/Processes window? It will
actually show you some cool stats like disk I/O (write/read), memory and
paging deltas, and a couple dozen other things. That still doesn't
eliminate the svhost problem you mention, but at least for uniquely
named processes it helps considerably.
Click View->Select Columns and choose the ones that interest you.
