Protected Content Plugin Makes Website Load Slow

The protected content plugin I am running is 1.4.1 and ever since I installed it I have had nothing but issues with it. I've been noticing ever since the install pages that are non protected load extremely slow. What can we do to speed up response time ? Also is there a way to bypass the account page ? I have users setup on a multisite environment and when they use to login it would take them right to their managed site . Thanks for your help.
