If you use DiskMon it will tell you it’s trying to load a bunch of folders / files in various locations. After deleting files from following folders there’s a night and day difference in load times:

C:\Users\<user_profile>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebSiteCache

C:\Users\s<user_profile>\AppData\Local\Temp\Temporary ASP.NET Files\vs

C:\Users\<user_profile>\AppData\Local\Temp\Temporary ASP.NET Files\root
