The 300MB memory sounds ok, the 5 minutes not so much. My netbook with 2GB
of memory and windows 7 gets the job done in 10 seconds.
Was your system perhaps loaded up with a lot of memory hungry applications
and/or do you have very little RAM?
Another possibility is a virus scanner. There are several very poorly
designed virus scanners on windows which slow down file access insanely. Try
turning off your virus scanner and see if that helps.
The output of a '-verbose 3' compile could also be helpful.
