Larg File with Polylines causes crosshairs to hang

I have a large drawing with 5 meter contours that are 2D polylines on elevation. In Civil 3D 2012, when the crosshairs touch a polyline the drawing hangs for quite awhile.  I've cut a piece out of the drawing so it is 28mb instead of 121mb and now the hang time is much less but it still does it.  It does not happen in AutoCAD 2012.

I changed the three system variable to all be zero. Works much better now, thank you.
