Macromedia Contribute boggs down over time

Hi.  I use dreamweaver to manage a site and my sister uses Contribute to also manage it to a lesser degree.  The contribute is just easier for her to use, but we have the reoccuring problem that Contribute seems to bog down over time and act up after a few months.  Eventually it gets so slow we have to delete contribute entirely and reinstall it.  That speeds things up again.  

Is there someway to accomplish this without deleting and reinstalling?  Some sort of "delete cookies and temp. internet files" for Contribute?  Any idea why this could be happe0ning?

The only thing I have run across is such a slowdown when the site is served up from an older NT server.  If you are modern that should not apply, and I don't see anything else other than perhaps the IE6 cache management bugs have something to do with it.

The description of getting slower and slower, and then going crazy, is the classic description of a C program with memory leaks, but that would only be possible if you were just leaveng it running with out ever shutting it down.
