Many a times it happens that your system just stop responding and then gets back to normal in few minutes, though many of use who are impatient just kill program and start doing it again. Though you do get back to work doing that but if there is an important process going on you might just lose data.
Process Tamer is an exclusive program which keeps on eye on your programs cpu usage and any time it tries to go beyond a level it lowers it by reducing the priority of that process temporarily.
You can define explicit rules on how a process should be controlled and set the level in the configuration section. The only thing you should not do is to kill it in my opinion. Download Process Tamer
