LifeHacker featured a cool tool this week called ProcessTamer. It monitors your PC for CPU hogs and "tames" them before they freeze your computer:
ProcessTamer does this by changing the priority of applications with wildly escalating CPU usage. This is one of those apps you'll have to try for yourself to decide whether it works for your situation, but if you have an app or two that constantly locks up your computer when you open it or perform a certain operation, ProcessTamer is definitely worth a look.
