This is bad! You are storing an ADO Connection in Session. See:
Store the connection string in Application (not Session - only use
Session for variables that are user-dependant). In you ASP page,
instantiate a new Connection object and open it using the string stored
in Application. Always close the connection as soon as you are finished
with it. Allow ADO Session Pooling to work for you.

This is probably the root of your problem. Since you don't close the
connection, it is likely to still be busy with the previous resultset,
and therefore uses the cursor, which is very slow as you now have

The secondary lesson you should be learning from this is that cursors
should be avoided if possible.

You're retrieving ALL the records??? Why aren't you using a WHERE clause
to limit the records retrieved?

I suspect you are handling the retrieved records in a less than optimal
manner as well. See

Also, you should avoid using selstar (select *) in production code:
