I disabled the visus scanner (McAfee). It made a huge difference in the speed. Probably a 30 - 50 time increase in speed.

I will be trying some of the other suggestions to see if I can find any other probs, but for now it is running how I would expect a Pentium II to run.

Does anyone know of a decent virus scanner that is not such a resource hog? McAfee is taking up too much.
