WSJT-X v 1.6 Freezes During Decode

WSJT-X v1.6.0 r6263 freezes within 15 minutes only when the decode takes place. I am running Win-7 64-bit with all current updates. This is on a desk top with a 3 GHZ processor and 6 gig of ram. The CPU % peaks out at 30% during the short decode period (assuming it doesn’t lock up) The waterfall stops flowing and the program just hangs, however the SDR program that feeds audio to WSJT-X continues to function. I presume the WSPR-2 decoder is causing the problem because it decodes JT-9 perfectly. Additionally, all older versions of WSPR work just fine on this machine, only WSPR-2 V1.6 gives me problems. Any suggestions on what I can do to correct this problem would be greatly appreciated.
