CPU Load Utility

I know that I could do this with a VM, but I'm lazy, and I don't want to have to
install and configure an entire development environment on a VM if there is a tool that
would let me slow down the CPU and chew up RAM to simulate a slower computer.
I've Googled for apps, but some of them look a little skeevy, and since I'm at work,
I'd prefer to use a recommended one.
Any suggestions for this kind of thing?

Trying to simulate a slow PC on a fast one is not going to give results that are accurate, and will make profiling awkward. The only thing I'd consider doing to simulate a slow PC is locking your program's affinity to a limited number of CPU cores with task manager.
