It isn't MC.  Many users have more than 100,000 files, some more than 500,000.

Antivirus?

Network?

More details might help.

Jim's answer stands...I have over 285,000 files on a w7 dual core 4g memory and it is very snappy :)

I wouldn't use Play Doctor to play everything.  Just use a normal play and shuffle it.

Jim makes a very good point.  You can easily add your whole library, or a subset of it to Playing Now, then "reshuffle" the Playing Now list to randomize it.  Player > Shuffle > Reshuffle .  Or <control>-R .

There are also much better ways to listen to a big collection than "full random".  You can make automatic mixes based on genres, years, etc.  What's interesting is MC can make these as smartlists, but the lists are different every time you select them!  The "mix" modifier and the "limit" modifier can be used to produce really interesting results.

See here for some examples of using mix:
