A lot of high level tracking or auditing can actually be performed within Windows (assuming you have Microsoft Windows). You can√Ęt get every single action taken by a program but you can see when a program is started, stopped, and a slew of other options. Change the Audit Policy by doing the following (for Windows XP because that is what I am using right now).

1. Click the Start button
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Performance and Maintenance
4. Click Administrative tools
5. Double-click Local Security Policy
6. Set the individual policies that you would like to audit and record

More information can be found at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/310399. I would suggest not turning on too many of them because you will generate a massive audit log over the course of a few days. This also leads to the problem of recording everything on your system with a third-party tool. The activity log alone would be many gigabytes for just a few hours.

For hard drive access I would recommend Process Monitor from SysInternals (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx). A similar tool is FileMon (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896642.aspx) also from Sysinternals. Both of these are free and very powerful but as stated above, they will show EVERY single hard drive access so be prepared to sift through a lot of data.

For network traffic, the professional√Ęs choice is Wireshark (https://www.wireshark.org/). Wireshark is a free open-source project that has been around for years and simply gets the job done. Once again, lots of logging information so be patient.

All of the tools that I listed are some of the best you can get but they do have a learning curve because they are so powerful.
