ioa.exe mdm.exe - killing ?

I have a box that is suddenly telling me I'm running low on vm.
It's set to 800 - 1200 now. It also freezes for short periods. The
CPU usage goes to zero at this time judging from what I see on
the CPU usage history - but since the task manager itself doesn't
update during the freeze I can't be sure.
Looking at the processes I see that IAO.exe is using 700MB of
memory, and it and mdm.exe spend alot of time running.
When the machine locks up for these short periods mdm.exe
is usually right at the top under system idle prcess..
Is my system dying and any practical suggestions before
I must spend the day at uS.com?
