Eclipse with Aptana plugin lagg and freeze

    I have Windows 7 build 7100 x64. I also have installed Java 6.13.
    Eclipse is a Java based platform so I guess the Java platform causes the problem:
    If I use the clipboard or I type too fast, the whole Eclipse starts lagg and if I click on something, it freezes permanently.
    Yes, this is a 64 bit OS but Eclipse works fine on Vista x64, so I don't think this is the reason.
    Other Java based applications works fine such as Woopra or Java applet in browsers.
    I tried the XP SP3 compatibility mode but it didn't help.

    I have Intel Core 2 E8400 which supports hardware virtualization, 8GB DDR2 RAM and ATI 4850 Toxic VGA.
    The OS is on a Transcend 64GB MLC SSD but Eclipse and few stuffs is on a SATAII HDD. So hardwares can't be the reason neither.

    Windows 7 is much greater than Vista but I'm disappointed because of Eclipse. :(

    Thanks a lot,

    win 7 ultimate v6.1 build 7127, win 7 32bit,
    Aptana is working more than perfectly -> just one small complaint while installing plugins but nothing to worry about -> i installed PyDEV, PHP, Adobe AIR, IPONE DEV Tools -> everything is working pefect!!

    i haven't made any changes to system, UAC is at the low level but haven't turned it off - just confirm install as normal, nothing to fix afterwards - just start and run Aptana as normal, choose working dir etc....

    i'm now happy user of win 7 and aptana studio :)

    I found the reason by now. This whole bug or whatever is because I edit files on a network drive.
    So on a local drive everything works fine, but on a network drive...
    How can I fix this?

    I also can't include network folders to the Libraries such as Documents, except if I syncronize them,
    what I really don't want to do with hundreds of Gigabytes.
    Win7 hates home serves. :D

    Should be very simple: Computer -> File -> Add a network location -> Next -> Choose a custom network location -> .....
    So you can make FTP, Network Share etc. work with your Aptana.
    Does this help?
