Changing user account role very slow in Small Business Server 2008

I am in the process of migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008. I have followed Microsoft's Migration document and I am at the point of changing user roles for existing users.

The problem I have is that the process of selecting roles, selecting users to set and the process of changing the role is very slow.

It can take as little as a few minutes to populate the user-role list or the user list, or it can take in excess of 30 minutes (by this time I have cancelled it).

Can anybody suggest why there is such a long delay and what I can do to resolve it?

Thanks

The problem was with my security software, CA Threat Manager r12. I uninstalled this and it resolved the problem immediately.
