    How do you view System Resources in Windows XP?

    Windows Me had a Resource Meter. Does XP? If so, where is it and how can I enable it? The Help & Support system didn't tell me anything.

    If there is a freeware utility you might recommend that is compatible with SP2, please let me know. Many memory managers are historically not good for Windows. I'd like something that can show me how much memory is used, how much is free, what my system resources are at, etc.

    System resources as they were in Win9x and Me don't exist in XP.

    Use task manager to see what your system is doing.

    A handy freeware utility. Process Explorer

    Thanks for Microsoft link and for explaining that. I already have Process Explorer installed. My brain is not working well today.
