Pokey server 2008 on VM

Hello.  I have a super nice 4 core, 12G HP DL380 server with VMWare 3.51 loaded on it.  I have 3 virtual machines.  Two were cloned and working fine, the one I'm having issues with is a new Server 2008 build.  The box is not tasked acording to the VM tools.  When I click on something I have to wait a full 45 seconds or more before it jumps.  Where do I look to improve performance?

Turned out to be a double solution.  The VM was using a different network card.  I changed the network card and that took care of half the problem.  Pings from the VM to server 1 were 1MS constant.  Pings from server 1 to VM were between 19-22MS constant.  Turned out to be Symantecs Network Threat Protection.  When NTP was disabled the VM was quick like it is supposed to be.
