You did take it up, but as a general rule reactivating a thread that has been dead this long is frowned upon.

Personally, I would not mind if a conversion (typically epub>mobi for me) took 10 minutes. But to hardly be able to even surf this forum while it converts is simply not helpful.
I don't run on a dual core XP machine anymore but when I did setting Job priority to low did allow me to surf fine while converting. When I view the running processes on my Windows 7 machine there are no processes that are not normal or high. Additionally in Windows 7 you have the below choices to set as job priorities, note that low is the bottom of the list. There is no very low.

Realtime
High
Above Normal
Normal
Below Normal
Low

You might want to ensure that calibre library is exempt from virus or malware screening.
