Xamarin Android Player constantly hangs

Every time I start the emulator, it complains about a timeout. If I click "yes" the emulator boots up and everything is fine. However, the pain doesn't stop there. Every time I click on a button the emulator hangs for 5 to 10 seconds. Sometime it will resume and sometime I will get a message box that the app or whatever, is not responding.
I have Virtualization enabled in the BIOS as well as the Virtual box settings for the emulator. I enabled 3D acceleration and increased the Video memory. Yet the emulator is not working as smoothly as it should.

I am running a beast PC (32GB RAM, i-7 with 8 cores, SSD ), however, I am still stuck with Win 7 since our IT has't approved Win10 yet.

is anyone experiencing the same thing? it is really annoying and sadly I have a choice between this emulator or the epic crappy one that ships with Android SDK.

Thanks,
