Yesterday I was given a task to help improve the performance of a feature. I was told that the feature was written in a very straight forward way, nearly no optimizations taken. The problem was that it took several minutes (yes, minutes) to run, rather than a few seconds or better than that.

Instantiating anything in a tight loop is generally bad for performance. Is that what was happening here? COM objects were being created and destroyed in a tight loop?
