Question:

My program displays a menu and I can press down-arrow 8 times and sit there and watch while the menu item selection moves down to catch up. I want to profile my program to see what operations are accounting for the slow user interface updates. 

What is the best profiling tool? What other options are available? Can I turn on tracing to display milliseconds in the timestamp for paragraph and program entry and exits?
