finder – Moving to trash takes too long – emptying trash takes more than 10 minutes (even for a single item)

OSX Ventura 13.2.1
How to recreate:
Drag folder to the trash; right click on trash and choose empty trash. Will take at least 10 minutes to empty the trash with just a single .png file.

Things I’ve tried:

Disabling all /Library/LaunchAgents and /Library/LaunchDaemons

Starting up in safe mode

Disabling all login items

Disk utility repair

Looking through console error messages

Deleting via command line

Disabling iCloud

Creating a new administrator level user and logging on as them works fine within their profile
