I've got a server running MS SQL Server 2005. I get slow performance from this server when I ask it to do the simplest of things. To me it looks like it is taking forever to setup the connection. Once the connection is made, the results come quickly.

For example, I'll be working in SQL Server Management Studio, and i'll ask it to return all row in table that only has 10 rows in it. The hour glass comes up for 15-20 seconds. Then BAM! My results are there. If I repeat the same thing just after, it'll return fast. Even if I move to another table it returns fast.

Anyone know why this may be happening? How to fix it?

I'm running Windows Server 2003 SP2, .Net 2.0 SP2, .Net 3.0 SP2, .Net 3.5 SP1
