    Suddenly my system has become very slow/freezes when using either Photoshop
    Editor or Canon DPP. I can work with the first picture without a problem but
    when I try to work with a second my system locks up for about a minute then
    unlocks. This happens in both Photoshop and Canon editing. I have tried
    defragmenting, registry cleaner, virus scans, etc. and no problems were
    noted. Everything else seems to be working fine and this problem just
    started out of nowhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    usually there is a big demand
    for memory and disk space
    when working with pictures
    and images.

    as such, windows usually tries
    to compensate for the demand
    by increasing the virtual memory.

    ---------------

    however, what I would try first
    is to disable your startups to get
    them out of memory.

    with more memory and no third
    party programs that could be
    interfering with your graphics
    program,

    a better assessment of the issue
    can be ascertained.

    -------------

    incidentally, how much ram do
    you have?

    How much RAM? How big is the pagefile? How much RAM do you let Photoshop
    control? Processor speed?
    Your experience is best described as the processor is waiting for some
    resource (probably scratch space).
    What you have done so far was way down on the list of probable causes.
