applet runs slowly

Now that I hav the Java compiler installed on my machine, applets execute slower than when I didnt have it installed. Whenever i encounter a page that has a Java applet, the Java console first loads automatically (which thakes about 30 secs and puts a java coffe cup in the lower left of my screen). Then I get a box on my screen where the applet will appear and all I see for a few seconds is a progress bar that says loading so and so class. Then the actual applet executes.
Why does applet execution slow down when a Java compiler is installed? Before I downloaded and installed it, all the applets (from the sites I browsed) used to execute quickly. Also is there anything i can do to speed up things with applet execution so I dont have to wait, and 3everything is quick like it was before I installed the compiler?
Lastly, if applet executions are slowed down, then why does every tutorial book ive read say java is fast?

Temporary solution to this problem is that you uncheck the Java 1.4 plugin from the Tools->Internet Options...->Advance Tab ->
You select Microsoft VM.

Sanjeev,
So why does the Java 1.4 VM cause a slowdown while the Microsoft VM does not? And anyways, if I disable the JVM, I cant run applets; if I could run applets using the Microsoft VM and dont need the Java 1.4 VM, then why would I need to choose the Java 1.4 VM over the Microsoft VM at all? Is there a reason the Java1.4 VM might b better than the Microsoft VM?
