LR 8.4 freezing

8.4
Operating System
Windows 7
After reviewing a shoot and rejecting unwanted images (X key), I go to delete the rejected photos (Ctrl+Backspace) and LR becomes unresponsive. The same issue pops up when deleting a single image using the Delete key. The program does not respond up to 15 minutes (haven't waited longer!). When reopening the program, the requested deletions are done and the selected images have been removed.
Using LR 8.4 on a Dell 3800, Win7 Pro, GPU off. Thoughts?
Thanks.

What is the history with 8.4 on this machine?
How full is the hard drive the photos and software are on?
Did the deletes used to work, and now not?
Did any thing change just before you noticed this? such as new software? or a Win 7 update?
