    Hmm, I'm wondering if you've looked full at the Task Manager in XP (Ctrl-Alt-Del). You can set it to show all processes from all users, and you can customize the information it shows. (via "View" menu > "Select Columns...").

    If you really want to see what a process is doing in depth, then I recommend Process Explorer from Sysinternals Freeware pages.

    Yes I looked at the task manager in XP. It don't show how much memory the program is taking up in MB. I don't know how to convert K into MB. :)

    Hello,

    1 MB = 1 KB*1024*1024 = 1048576 KB

    Memload will show free/maximum physical and swapfile memory.
    ....... displays per process memory..in MB when applicable.. shows you everything that's running and loaded into memory (both physical and swap file).
