Slow loading pages

Hello All, 

I am in the process of setting up a BlogEngine v1.6 blog, but am experiencing very slow loading pages (>30secs). It seems to be affecting all pages and does not improve if the page has been loaded previously (so already compiled, right?). On pages with posts, the widgets load quickly (within a few seconds), but the actual post text takes much longer. 

Initially, I thought the cause was the XML provider, so I converted the blog to SQL server, but this has resulted in no improvement in loading times.

Subsequently, I disabled all of the extensions, which again provided no noticeable improvement. 

I'm fairly sure the problem isn't due to the number of widgets either, as I only have 'recent posts', 'tag cloud' and 'month list' enabled. 

Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, please can you point me in the right direction? 

For information, I have access to the IIS. 

Many thanks,
