I am/was having the same problem.
what was happening to me is that when I was finished processing something in photoshop, photoshop would make a new scratch disk .temp file instead of deleting the pervious one.
all of a sudden instead of having one scratch .temp file on my partion for adobe photoshop scratch files, I would have a whole bunch.
The scratch disk would then become full, slowing photoshop and everything else for that matter that was running at the same time.
I don't know why it sometimes does this, and I am hoping to get an answer from here.
in the mean time, check where you assigned the scratch files goes and make sure there is only ONE temp scratch file

outside chance but worth a try
