Memory usage DUMPING during file access

This is somewhat related to my previous post about memory issues.

I currently have a fairly small assembly open - SW is consuming 72,496K of memory.

EVERYTIME I FILE-OPEN ( or FILE SAVE, SAVE AS, NEW FILE...ETC ) SW causes the entire system to hang for 15-20 seconds.....watching the memory usage in the task manager, as soon as the "hang" releases the system, the memory usage will drop to almost NOTHING, the hard drive will start thrashing, the system will SLOWLY start to respond, and the memory usage will SLOWLY start to build.

This is driving me NUTS!!!

A reboot will eliminate this problem for a short period of time...sometimes.
