I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hit ctrl shift esc and click on the "processes" tab (if you don't see it click "more details "on the bottom). Than click on the columns like "CPU" or "Memory" to filter if it has reached the Max CPU or Memory that your computer can handle.

Any given process only runs out of resource when it (or others with it) use all CPU, Disk and Memory. The post above shows a nice picture of Task Manager which is a good tool to use. Mine is always running in my System Tray.

Also do not forget that an average computer use from 50 to 125 processes in normal running and no one process has a limit
