    Can you explain a little more about what exactly you are looking for and in what context?

    You see, when most people talk about "System Resources" on a Windows PC, they are usually referring to the percentage of used/free memory structures that were one of the key limitations with Windows 9x/ME systems. However, you posted that you use XP, so that whole concept does not apply to your system.

    On Windows XP, system resources would refer to a more general set of resources such as used versus free memory (RAM), disk space and even CPU processing power, but not the old "system resources" as described here:

    If you used to run an older Windows version and had received the warnings about being low on system resources, and perhaps saw a percentage indicator showing something like: 28% free and knew that that was trouble, none of that applies on Windows XP.

    On XP, what you can see is the free/used memory, pagefile usage and CPU usage as shown in the Task Manager (ctrl alt del) - see the different tabs there, especially the Performance tab.
