Visualize GUI responds SLOWWWWW?

Sometimes Visualize seems to stop dead in it's tracks for many minutes at a time. It hasn't crashed, although windows task manager reports it as "not responding" and CPU usage hangs steady at around 15% until it finishes whatever it is doing. Sometimes it does it while switching from preview to fast mode, but not always. Sometimes it does it switching between tabs (Models, Appearances, Scenes, Cameras) but not always. Sometimes it does it for no apparent reason. It doesn't seem to be related to autosave, which also slows the GUI down but for more understandable reason. It also doesn't seem to have much to do with the model size. I'm currently working on a model that is around 7.6 million polygons, but I've had it happen with far smaller models. It also does it regardless of whether I have Solidworks open or not. There is very little going on otherwise on the computer other than a few Chrome browser windows.

Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom!
