I use a program called Budget Advisor (Windows only version).

Not sure if it offers as much detail (especially in detailed entries of transactions) as you wish, but it works for me.

Here's a link: Home Budget Software made simple - Free one month trial

I have version 2.33 and am happy with the simpler version.
