Have you tried running without IIS? If not, please do so. What are the timings then?
Thank you for your response. Yes I have tried it without IIS and it's quick!
It has got to do with some of the configuration in IIS7. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this delay.
I figured out the problem. It was my IIS7 Installation. I had an old JRun4 ISAPI filter installation. I had removed it but apparently IIS was still trying to use it.
I had to completely remove IIS7 and install it again for it to work.
Thanks Peter for trying to help.
Ah yes, I never would have guessed that. ;-)
Though i might have suggested trying it on another system, which might have lead to the solution...
