All of a sudden it has started taking forever to load. We're talking a few minutes. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help. Happy Holidays.

Have you investigated the computer for issues first?

The usual suspects are:
  • run away software in the background (kill it or reboot, see it in Task Manager)
  • Dying hard drive (Event Log errors will show up)
  • crypto mining malware using many resources (could be in the browser or on your system directly)
  • other malware running junk in the background
I posted a bit on a similar topic a couple years ago.

Back up the iTunes folder and your music files first. Then look at what could be wrong.
