Slow DOS box when Access is running

I still use some DOS applications running in a DOS box on a Win95 PC. This works fine.
But if I leave the DOS box, activate Access97 (even without loading a database) and return to the DOS box, the DOS application is running terribly slow.
The PC is a Pentium166 with 32 MB RAM

Does your DOS app slow down even further when a database is open?

change the about of memory you reserve for each program.  Make a dos icon on your desktop right click it select [memory] change the amount there or goto misc and change the idle settings. you can play around with these for both your dos and access icon.
