controlling process utilization with Terminal Server 2008 - IE grabs 100%

I am running a Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server. Today we had one user bring the system to a grinding halt as they accessed a Web site with IE8 - the Web site was the only one they were accessing and it was a very standard site.  Is there any way I can configure the TS so that no one process or one user can ever take more than x%.

Also I would  appreciate knowing how I could troubleshoot a problem like this to determine why an innocuous seeming IE session could do this.

In theory you can use Windows System Resource Manager.  That said I have had nothing but bad experiences with it (usually causing the resources issues it is designed to avoid) and so I would advise extreme caution when using it.  I'd certainly monitor it for problems...

Have you seen this behaviour outside of the Windows 2008 R2 RDS environment?

Thanks for the feedback.

Are you saying that Windows System Resource Manager allows me to set limits on how much resources what processes/applications/users can utilize? I am not talking about specific application/process/user control but generic control either in RDS or not. In other words can I set a generic limit of let's say 10% utilization for processes/applications/users so none of those could go over that limit?  

Is specific control allowed as well - e.g. this user/this process/this app can't use more than x% CPU, etc.?

Install "Windows System Resource Manager" and set active policy to either equal per user or equal per process.

It is installable fro 2003 EE, and i dont know if it is available for 2008 core and other small editions, but check.

There are 3rd party solutions if it is nt available for 2008 (just ask)
