So thats my question.  

I have a machine that the person says the machine freezes when they use the browser, over time.  I have been unable to reproduce the problem.  

I would like to reproduce the problem, work on the machine change drivers update whatever, and be able to test it again using the browser to make sure the problem is gone.

Can I do that and how

Setup perfmon to monitor memory utilization by process, specifically the browser.
Triggering when use goes above 500MB

Monitor system collecting data.

To me it sounds like you want to automate starting the browser and then doing stuff with the browser (search, fill in forms, go from one website to another); if that is the case then you can approach this from a few different angles. Write VBA code to create a macro or you can use something that will help you create a macro, like imacro although this is not the only option.
