Do you have a virus checker running with "real time file protection"?

We had a significant performance increase by disabling "real-time file
protection on all file operations" in Norton Anti Virus. Apparently that
configurations scans files everytime they are accessed, and if you have a
few large projects open in Eclipse there is always a lot of file access
going on.
