I am looking for a program that can limit the amount of RAM an application is allowed to use. If possible, free and compatible with Windows 7 x64.

Process Lasso provides some advanced process monitoring options:

You can configure rules inside a process watchdog that triggers an action (e.g. terminating the process) when the memory usuage becomes greater than defined.

Here is a screenshot:

Watchdog configuration

You can also disallow specified processes from running, log all processes run, and even set various other process rules. These rules, amongst many others, include automatically restarting or terminating a process after it reaches some CPU or memory threshold

  • Nice one, thanks! It seems like memory limitation isn't free, right? bitsum.com/howfree.php – Franck Dernoncourt Jun 26 '14 at 19:41
  • So excellent!!! But why "restart the proccess"? Why not to "cut virtual memory"? – kokbira Sep 1 '17 at 14:11
