This basically sumarizes my experience.  No problem when LilyPond was
initially installed, but the slowdown occured with a later install.  As
discussed in


I would guess this is because [user]/.lilypond-fonts.cache-2/ is no longer
being created.  No version will now create the font cache.

I have also tried all of the suggestions above made by Han-Wen with no
change in results.  Further, I tried with User Account Control turned of...
No effect.  At one point I unstalled, manually removed all references in the
Registry to LilyPond (which is not to say that I could in fact find them
all), with restarts in between... No effect.  I have no doubt that something
has gotten trashed along the way in Vista.  For the time being, the work
around suggested in the other thread still seems to be ok.
