What is the best way to monitor your bandwidth and see where it's going?

I'm noticing my download speed isn't up to what it normally is and I don't see anything that is downloading anything in the back ground. Is there an easy way to see where my speed is going? It'd be great if you could see across the whole network too, I've had this problem before where company comes over and immediately starts downloading crap and hogging all my bandwidth, so it'd be nice if I could open an application or something and see what's going on

Wireshark.

Although unless you know a thing or two about networking it's probably just gonna confuse you.

I don't know much at all about networking, does what I'm talking about even exist? Google didn't really turn anything up either. I'm basically talking about something like the system resource manager that just shows your network usage

If you're using Windows 7, or presumably 8 and possibly Vista, you can load up the Task Manager, click the Performance tab, click the Resource Monitor button, and load up a program that displays a lot of interesting information. Some of that information being the Network tab which displays all programs using your network adapter, what IP addresses they're connecting to, and how much data is being passed either way.
