Try Process Lasso ("PL"). This is one kewl app. The only area I did not rate as Excellent is Ease of Use. PL itself is fairly easy to use per se. The problem is you are dealing with a very complex area - the innards of your machine.
An average user likely would not be drawn to either Task Manager or PL. Then again, they say "boy I wish I could" and fail to find out that they usually can - if they did a bit of leg work.
One of the main uses I have for PL is forensics related to malware. It can assist you in determining that you have been had by a nasty! On a day to day basis, I use it to control regular apps that have gone off the deep-end. One of its key strengths is the ability to terminate an app when your system is in free fall.
PL is nearly unique, but fills a niche. It does have a fairly steep learning curve, but is well worth it. Unlike some apps it actually is both useful and can assist you to learn about the inner wrongs of your CPU and RAM.
