    InDesign CS5 constantly hangs

    wizardsmist-jaGOyc Level 1

      I just got a new iMac 27" (i7 processor) and installed CS5.  Periodically, when I'm in InDesign, the program will just stop and I'll get the beach ball indefinitely.  The only thing I'm able to do at that point is force quit.  It doesn't seem to lose much - I generally get everything back but it can't be good to keep force quitting the program.  In an 8 hour day of me using InDesign, I will say it happens 4-5 times or so.   It seems to happen when I'm switch from one windo to another.  Just now, I was copying some text from Word and was going to paste it into InDesign and got the beach ball.  The rest of my computer seems fine and I don't seem to have that problem in any of the other Adobe programs (although I don't use them as much as InDesign).

       

      Checking in Activity Monitor, I see that it is using 100% of the CPU.  Per a previous post, I've created the pastebin.com post of the "sample process" file here:  http://pastebin.com/fGE9wYgG

       

      Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!
