Some things to try and report back on:

Working directory, anything change?
Is working path local or on network?
Is the Project Viewer open?
Clean Paradox desktop?
Does the working folder have a *.JOB file in it?
Change working directory to another folder, same behavior?
Change working directory to an empty folder, same behavior?
Change working directory to another folder on other drive if possible, same
Windows indexing on? Anything change?
