Ok, so its hard to say just from this. Some general things that may or may
not apply:

* try disabling all extensions just to elliminate faulty extension as a
cause.
* enable profiling (if possible. Probably requires installing xhprof) to
determine what mediawiki is spending all its time doing. This would be the
most useful thing to figure out what is going on.
* if using sqlite, switch to mariadb (sqlite has poor concurrency)


Some general performance tips:
* ensure that caching is enabled. On IIS you probably want to set up
XCache. Otherwise use apcu. Once apcu or xcache is set up, make sure
wgMainCacheType = CACHE_ACCEL;
*although windows is supported, mediawiki is definitely better tested on
linux.
