Default Costume Party Super-Slow

For some reason, my Costume Party game is incredibly slow. Not just a bit slow every now and then, but rather constantly at a level of slowness where, the player (and everything else that moves, for that matter) moves at the speed of a dead snail. You can tell especially on timed levels when a second on the game clock lasts about four seconds. Any way to fix this?

Turning off the music speeds it up for me.

Actually, I have the music and sound off, but it's still slow. Rather suspiciously, it started yesterday, the day after I bought the Dumb and Winter Packs. Hm...

If you're not currently, you might want to try running the OpenGL version, which is available on the start menu. (See this FAQ entry: http://www.hamumu.com/help.php?q=54)

Try avoiding running other programs while playing CP. If you have other programs open, close them, close CP, then re-open CP. That's what usually works for me.
