Sounds like a RAM resource issue. If you are running too many applications that can happen.
Vista needs a lot of RAM itself to run effectively as does your active security products. Once you start running other programs each will need a certain amount of RAM. If you have too much running, then the programs start competing against each other.
Microsoft says you only need 1GB to run Vista Home Premium, but that is grossly understated when you start running other programs simultaneously.
