I wrote a little program to just ReadDirectoryChangesW and log every disk access. It was quite frightening. Windows XP does tons of crazy disk ops all the time, even if you're just browsing around it descends into subdirs and snoops around. Both of the browsers (IE and FireFox) are insane, you open one page and they touch 100+ different files, not just in the cache but in your settings.
