I know this is probably a very elementary question but with the windows task manager, if you click on "proccesses" go to a program running and right-click you get a drop-down menu that reads: end process, end process tree, "debug"(grayed) and set priority. My question has to do with the debug part. Is this discontinued? Is there some way of using it and particularly what exactly does it do?

The Task Manager provides information about programs and processes running on your computer. Have a read in this M$ Overview about the Task Manager.
Here is an article on How to use the Windows Task Manager.

It's my understanding that you'd have to have a kernel level debugger installed in order to access this choice. It also may only work if a crash dump has been generated for this particular process during the current session.
