Q: Why does my iTunes run so slow?

I am running windows vista on my 17″ hp pavilion dv9000 with 2GB of RAM. In my iTunes library I have less than 15 albums. I do not have many other applications open and my windows media player does not run slow where I have over 100 albums in it. But my iTunes does especially when I use cover flow. Why is this? Is this because its running on a PC and not a Mac or what?
