Thank you for the advice.

I should have mentioned before that I'm kind of a newbie, so I didn't
quite understand the specifics of your recommendations.

I'm not sure what "top" refers to. But I have a CPU monitor in the top
right corner of my screen. It goes almost solid blue, indicating that
the CPU is maxing out. It stays maxed out for the duration of the time
that I am waiting for phpMyAdmin/MySQL to return a result.

How do I check these settings?
