FTM 2012 extremely slow report generating

Classification: Query
I have FTM 2012 on a computer w/ Windows XP and it runs fine, a bit slow on startup but with over 8,600 individuals and associated items - I expected that.
What I didn't expect was how long it takes to generate a descendant report of 14 generations - egad - I could move to a new house faster. I shut down/disabled everything else on my computer, ended all processes that were extra - enhanced the performance of the computer, did one generation at a time increase - and it still took forever - actually it never finished - I gave up after 11 hours.
I finally got fed up, reloaded my FTM 2006 and the 688 page report generated in less than 10 minutes.
So, it's not my Windows XP computer - it is definitely the program - even if the program is a resource hog - it shouldn't take days for FTM 2012 to generate a report that took FTM 2006 less than 10 minutes.
Any thoughts? Am not financially able to buy a new computer, I have plenty of hardware installed.
