What size are the images? Every source of footage in your comp should be at or close to 100% scale at some point in the composition. If that is not the case you need to resize the images to an appropriate size for use in a video project.
You may also be running into problems with CPU allocation and MP settings what are they? Is your AE completely up to date? Without seeing your timeline with properties revealed I don't have much more to offer.
What exact version of After Effects are you using?
I'm using the most up to date AE in the could. I will check to make sure the images are all the same size. They actually may not be. I'm not sure what they are set at. One of your program developers was playing around withthose settings he said and it wasn't helping render any more than roughly 5 additional frames.
Oh sorry it is set at 1.5

Please give the exact version number.

Are you meaning to say that you are already in communication with Adobe Technical Support? If so, then you should just continue with that, not here on the forum.
