Hey guys, can anyone tell me what is the single best utility whether paid or free that there is which can be used to monitor a pc's performance please? I am seeking one which can sit on the desktop in a small window which I can immediately look to whenever something starts hanging the system to see what might be the cause.

If you are wishing to keep tabs on applications that are running when the computer hangs you could just use the Task Manager under the Processes tab.

Seriously, if "all looks normal" in task manager, and you've chosen the correct column to sort on, then that strongly suggests a hardware issue of some sort.

 

I have never seen an "all looks normal" situation in task manager when there was a runaway process/program stalling the system.
