In this paper, we present an algorithmic method for computing a protective resolution of a module over an algebra over a field. If the algebra is finite dimensional, and the module is finitely generated, we have a computational way of obtaining a minimal projective resolution, maps included. This resolution turns out to be a graded resolution if our algebra and module are graded. We apply this resolution to the study of the Ext-algebra of the algebra; namely, we present a new method for computing Yoneda products using the constructions of the resolutions. We also use our resolution to prove a case of the "no loop" conjecture.
