When I open my solution in Visual Studio 2005, source control integration takes a very long time to "Update Source Control Status" ... why?

We have been using Studio 2005 SP1 and Visual Source Safe 6.0d together for some time now.  Recently I have moved to a new development machine and it is taking me forever to open a solution.  Source safe always took a long time to "Update pending checkins", but nothing like this.  Also, it never used to freeze studio while I waited for it to work, now it seems I have to wait until it's finished.

What are some things that could be slowing it down?

Well that would certainly speed things up!  :) But, I need to have Source Safe working.  Just being disconnected from the rest of the development department isn't really a solution for me.

Update:  After re-installing Source Safe, Studio and searching the Internet I've decided that what it seems to be doing is "Updating Pending Checkins" ... which is fine, this has always taken ages, but it used to do it on a background thread.  Now it seems as though it's doing it on a foreground thread which is freezing the ui and taking far longer than it ever has before.

I've read that in Studio 2003, "Updating Pending Checkins" happened on a Foreground thread, but that in Studio 2005 it happens on a background thread allowing you to continue working while it's doing its thing... not sure if this is the problem, certainly seems related.

Turned out our Network's Antivirus was slowing it down.
