System slooowwwing down - help!

Sudenly my system is crawling: iMac 2.4 20" OSX 10.4.10
Apps take forever to open or close. I checked Activity Monitor and I only have 21MB free out of 2gb and the MDS process is using 1.2gb of memory. I know mds is part of Spotlight. I haven't made any changes that I am aware of. What can I do to correct this short of an archive and install or a complete reinstall. I think it's user related because my emergency user, "Mr. Clean", runs fine. Why would Spotlight start to eat up all my CPU cycles and memory?
