Hi,

My Arduino IDE is being VERY slow on my Windows 7 desktop. My computer is plenty fast, so that is not the issue. It takes awhile to start up like 20 - 30 secs, and then it takes 40+ secs to compile even the simple blink example sketch. Also, clicking on any menu causes the IDE to lock for about 40 secs. How do I fix this?

Check if you have any bluetooth stuff on, that's been the culprit in the past.

Hi,

I disabled the Bluetooth radio on my computer, and that fixed the issues with the UI freezing, and now the IDE starts within a few seconds. The compile times are still really slow though. What could be causing this?

I counted 45 seconds to compile the blink example. I tried the same example on my netbook running Slackware Linux, and it only took about 6 seconds, and my netbook is half the speed of my desktop.
