Autodesk AutoCAD civil 3d 2009 locking up

I am troubleshooting this install for a company, we have two identical workstations for CAD, one is working fine, the other has no problems with any software other than autocad civil 3d 2009, the previous version 2008 runs fine, I have cleaned temp files, installed all updates for windows XP SP3, all device drivers are the newest available, the workstation is an intel motherboard (not sure which one exactly) with an intel core 2 quad 2.4 ghz 4gb ddr2, and a nvidia geforce 8800gts with 640mb video ram, the minimum requirements are a 1ghz cpu, 1gb ram, and 256 mb video ram if i remember correctly, but for some reason ac3d still locks up intermitently often before a drawing can even be opened, I have already placed about 3 calls to tech support and they have been of no help, I have also run memtest to ensure the system memory isn't going bad, drawings are stored on a server, copied some to the local machine, the software is being run from the local machine, has been installed alone and alongside 2008, both methods produce the same results, the page file was set to 2048mb and recomended was 4997 I changed it to 5500 still no luck, currently it is set to system managed, I have also run virus scans using F-prot and clamwin, also ran adaware(all at seperate times and uninstalling the previous before trying the next, currently the pc has no antivirus installed in order to troubleshoot). I am at a loss, and apparently so is cad research/Autodesk, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I've been working on this for a few days now, and dont seem to be making any progress.

I am running AutoCAD 2011 and have had the same problem on the mechanical side where the system does a total lock down and has to be hard booted. I also found that inserting files into another file bogged the system down for 5 to 8 minutes and AutoCAD was not responding. I found the problem starts when I have to go deep into a directory file and its sub files. The solution I have found is to not run the Aero themes and just use the windows classic theme, this for some reason solved the problem for me.

How may memory cards are in the machine. Try moving them around so that the ones on the outsides are on the inside. That forces the physical memory to change. Virtual memory is mapped to physical memory by the OS. When that happens some parts of memory are locked for the OS. It is possible that a portion of the "locked" memory is failing and not being detected/corrected. The OS can handle this in "user" areas without problem and usually everywhere as well. Sometimes it can not. Moving the mem cards around will likely put any undetected problem areas within the "user" area and thus be less of a problem should the problem be a faulty memory cell.

Keep us posted.

If all of the above solutions fail to resolve the issue, and a full uninstall and reinstall of AutoCAD does not help (see Remove All Products from a Windows System), then you may need to reformat your hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
