first of all ur post title has nothing to do with ur description.
to end a process via task manager has nothing to do with dump files what so ever,
it wont do anything unless u end the right process, some processes are windows and system ones and should not be end.
as for ur memory how do u know its history, have u ran a memory diagnostic tool?
run a malware scan using malwarebytes(google). and check cpu temps using speedfan.

computers are a second home

Ending as process does just that. It doesn't do any "long term" harm. If it is an important Windows process then you will need to restart the computer to get Windows back afterwards.

If this is your first PC, what makes you think there is some need to end a process, and which one? This is not something you would normally do.

What particular process is showing high CPU or RAM usage?

The best way forward is to explain what issues you are having (in full) and with luck we should be able to advise a course of action.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
