INACTIVATE PARTS takes a lot of time

When trying to inactivate inventory items, our Quickbooks takes about 30 seconds to process once an item is selected for inactivation.  That doesn't sound like a lot of time, but it takes one hour to inactivate 120 items and we have a large number of part numbers to inactivate.  Does anyone else have this delay issue and is there a better way to inactivate items.  We are inactivating the items from the Inventory Center screen.
