Question about memory consumption in my codes by using Mathematica 6, Thanks!

I write a routine that repeats loading and treating a large amount of data imported from external data files produced by another program. I enclose codes for this task in a simple Module[{local_vars}, expressions]. Of'cause, it calls pre-defined routines outside but does not introduce any new variable except temple local ones. I am confused that If this is done for just one or two loops/times, it works well. But if I hope to run this loop several times, like 10~200, Mathematica usually reports memory consumed out and terminates automatically. I check my codes over and over to make sure that I do not introduce new variables in each loop that will eat up memory every time. But, I do notice (from windows task manager) that the used memory by Mathematica 6 is increasing with each loop. Please help! Thanks a lot in advance!
