Resharper using 96 GB of virtual memory

I've been having an issue recently on my workstation where all of a sudden the computer gets slow, the hard drive light turns on solid, and eventually the system locks up. At first it seemed like a bad hard drive, but when I looked in the event viewer I saw this:Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: JetBrains.ReSharper.TaskRunner.CLR4.MSIL.exe (9676) consumed 97192595456 bytes, devenv.exe (4980) consumed 858210304 bytes, and svchost.exe (1164) consumed 728424448 bytes.   Let me put some commas in there:     97,192,595,456 It did seem to happen after I started up Visual Studio with our solution (which has some pretty large projects in it), but I initially discounted it as coincidence because I open it a lot--it's one of the first things I do in the morning. I left my computer running for two days and when I got back it was still locked up with the hard drive light solid.If I start Visual Studio without any solution, nothing seems to happen.Resharper info:JetBrain ReSharper 7.1.1 C# EditionBuild 7.1.1000.900 on 2012-12-13T23:22:48Visual Studio 2010 UltimateWindows 7 x64 with 24GB of RAM, 12 cores.I also have dotCover installed. I run unit tests and code coverage regularly from Visual Studio.It's happened twice now. Any ideas what could be going wrong?Ben

Hello Ben,

Could you please try to "Resharper | Options | Environment | General | Clear caches" when you have your solution opened? Please let me know if it helps.

Thank you in advance!
