The title pretty much sums it up.  When my pc does funny one of the first things I check is task manager and then event viewer logs for more detailed verification if there is any. lol

Task manager to see what's running?  "man top" (there are probably graphical versions too)

Event Viewer, someone more familiar with Windows will have to help there.

Well it's not the exact equivalent of Task Manager, but you can press the Windows key to open the Main Menu then type System Monitor then press Enter...

Pretty much every distro comes with a task manager/killer depending on your setup it normally can be found in the menu

There are also system monitors that do the same thing
