I had an install of msvc 9 that was so incredibly slow that I just
couldn't bring myself to use it.  But other computers I've used it on
are fine.  There was nothing particularly slow about that PC where it
was running slowly, though.  I think it was just a botched install or
something.  You might try re-installing.
