    Debugging tools for windows

    Not sure where exactly this question fits into the forums but the mods can move it as they see fit... MY problem involves C++ code but it is general in that i am looking for a tool to help me solve a problem posed by C++ code.

    Now to the question. I am looking for tools or a set of tools that can be used to look at the heap and the stack(Not just my programs). I am trying to track down a slow heap leak which may or may not be related to the code which i have written. It is possible it is in the API I am using. Anyone have any experience using any such tools? I would really like the ability to watch certain blocks of the heap and stack while windows is running :|

    Each program has it's own stack and heap. So what are you asking?
