1. thing I do on occasion, is to save my PCB work in ASCII mode, shut down
Protel & reboot, then re-load the new ASCII version, then save as normal
binary, & work from there.  In the past, way in the past, this would help
solve crashes due to Protel's handling of invisible, or, 0 radius ACRs in
the design which somehow stay in the design, even after deleting them by
hand.

2. Another thing to try might be to shrink your virtual memory to 256
megabytes.  The .swp file is read and written so often that you HD may have
a byte or 2 which are stuck even after re-writing.  This did actually happen
on my 80Gig WD drive.

3. Which chipset motherboard are you using?
