    Extreme lag in CS5


      I'm experiencing extreme lag while using photoshop lately. I'm running CS5 on a Mac OS X 10.5.8. My computer is about three years old but the hard drive was replaced about 6 months ago.

      Basically what happens is that the program runs incredibly slow especially when opening files and saving files, no matter what the size. I have ample space on my hard drive and ps is not using the scratch disk for RAM or anything. I've also uninstalled or unchecked a variety of features that I don't use. This only started happening two days ago. I've installed all updates for Mac and PS but nothing has changed. I'm an art student so I'm using PS all the time, so it's become a real pain. Thanks for the help.
