Why is my editor slow?

I am using MATLAB R2011b on a Win 7 machine. When using the editor, command window, or even any figures that I create, the response is very slow, sometimes 5 to 10 seconds. It may or may not be relevant, but when some windows are slow to come up, they will pain the frame, wait a few seconds, then place the Java icon on the caption bar.
This makes editing tedious and error prone. Is anyone else experiencing this and / or where do I look for a solution?

Sorry for the delay in getting back but I was traveling. The memory is 16G on a 64 bit system. The biggest file I use is 52k.

You can increase your Java heap space and observe if the error persists. Refer to - https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_external/java-heap-memory-preferences.html
