What are you doing to my computer?

I'd like to have a log file of everything an application does to my Windows (XP) system. All files added/removed, all changes to the registry, and everything else it does to the disk. Can this be done free or cheaply?

I'd like a separate log file for each application, or at least have each log file entry easily traceable to an app. I'd like this for a couple of reasons. I'd like to know what some apps are doing to slow down my system, lengthen boot times, etc. I'd also like to be able to back up and restore custom settings for some apps in an automated way rather than reconfiguring manually. And I just like to complain, complain, complain about windows and the registry. I don't need suggestions on how to speed up my system. I understand that stuff.
