You are probably running in 24-bit mode. Use the "Memory" control
panel to change to 32-bit mode, then reboot your Mac.

Also, you might want to try using "system 7 tuneup". It's available
from users groups and dealers, and also by anonymous ftp from 
ftp.apple.com in "/dts/mac/sys.soft/7.0.tuneup"
