Lightroom 6.6.1: Import extremely slow (Window 10)

I am running LR 6.6.1 (recent upgrade) from LR6)  with Windows 10, 12GB Ram 200+GB free disc space, 9 core processor.  It is so slow on importing event 100 photos into an empty catalog that it is unuseable.  I posted this issue 3 weeks ago and all I received as an answer was to try upgrading to 6.6., which I was already using.  I have tied all the fixes in the forums, e.g reinstalling, starting with a clean catalog, deleting the preference file, turning off GPU, all to no avail.

I can find no avenue for getting Adobe support for fixing this issue even though I just plunked down $149 for the upgrade.  If this issue cannot be addressed, the product is useless.  How would I go about getting a refund?

An update, Lightroom 6.7, was released yesterday. How does its performance compare?
