Every time I run several programs, they all run at the same time thereby overloading my system. Is there a utility which will allow me to run a program after the previous program has completed. Thanks

Just create a batch file (.bat) with commands like this:

Start /wait notepad.exe
Start /wait iexplore.exe
Start /wait mspaint.exe

When you run the batch file, it will open the program you specify in the parameter after /wait and wait until it closes before opening the next program.
