Slow performance is sometimes a clash with an anti-virus. Try disabling your anti-virus completely to test the difference. You may also be able to disable "real-time scanning" or get it to bypass Studio.
I used Kaspersky and deselected everything concerning SDL. Still a save of a 22000 word file took 4 minutes. MS Essential took the same when enabled, but only 5 seconds if disabled. Finally I tried AVG free: 5 seconds with full protection.
