Lag in Loading Page

Has anyone run the project trying to load a simple HelloWorld page or even just the basic home page that Orchard sets up and it takes over 3 minutes before the page gets rendered?  It didn't happen before but suddenly today it does that after I had to reset my virtual machine, reloaded the project and recreated the HelloWorld module.  I'm not sure if it's the connection to the database or what, but how can I fix this?  I thought it was my machine so I restarted but it's still doing the same thing.

Thank you

That's clearly not right. You might need to do some profiling. Are you running in full trust, release mode?

Clearly it's not right b/c it wasn't doing that last time I got it working.  How can I check and what do I need to make that change?  Thank you

I made three suggestions above. Full trust can be checked in web.config. Release mode is the compilation mode in visual studio. Profiling means using a tool such as JetBrains DotTrace to figure out where all that time is spent.

Ah!  I'm new so thank you for the patience :)

Of course. It's hard to figure out what's wrong from where I'm standing so I can only shoot at random for most common causes for this sort of thing. 3 minutes? That's crazy.

Yeah...sometimes longer :)  It wasn't doing that last week when you were helping me getting the HelloWorld up and running.  Now I got some things together and I wanted to try but it's lagging.  I updated the VMWare machine with VS2010 Sp1.  I deleted the database and the Orchard source.  I did everything from scratch and from my VMWare machine, I remapped the project folder, located on my Host Machine.  I loaded the Orchard project in VS off of the "mapped" drive, which is on my host machine, so I'm not sure why it's still lagging.  I know VS has a problem with loading projects off of network shares but I wonder why it didn't happen last week.  Could it be the SP1?  If I can't fix this, then I'll just load it into the "local" drive of the machine and synchronize files I guess. :(  Thanks for your help.

Maybe. Running it from a share has been known to have that sort of result in some cases, although I'm not sure what exactly. Running from a share is a fairly common setup at hosters, and it works well as  far as I know.
