RE: cygwin too slow

I restricted my path to just /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin , but
still there's been no change in slowness that I see with every command. Here
we are given a customized Windows O.S for the company I work, by Dell
(Windows 2000 Pro). This is really mysterious. In strace I'm not able to see
which system call is eating up so much time as when I start a program say
'ls' with strace, I see nothing and only as ls begins to run after getting
loaded, strace throws it's output. I guess strace is also taking it's own
time to run ?. I'm also not sure what tools on windows could be used for
troubleshooting as this is my first close encounter with MS Windows :)

WAG, got any network drives in your path, especially ones that are not
accessable?  Where does strace show a long time between system calls?

And, oh yeah:
