Why is SolidWorks 2016 not responding after adding an assembly constraint?

Suddenly, like within the past week, Solidworks 2016 has started hanging every time I finish adding an assembly constraint.  This is not a large assembly and they aren't complex parts.  I've had this version installed for several months and it didn't do it before (or I'd have gone crazy by now).  I turned off auto-save.  Didn't make a difference.  I found that SW was using the integrated video card on my laptop, so I ran it with the "High-performance NVidia processor," didn't help.

 

It's like it just checks out after every assembly constraint function for 5 to 15 seconds.  Anyone have any ideas as to why or how to make it stop, other than giving my computer to IT for re-imaging?
