Installed a new module and now the site is insanely slow - stylesheets in the CP aren't loading even, 5-10 minute wait per page load. Is there any way to disable all the plugins at once? Deleting them from the third_party folder didn't help.

You can disable all extensions (which is the likely culprit, as a module doesn't have the power to inject anything into all of the control panel) by editing your /system/expressionengine/config/config.php file like so:

$config['allow_extensions'] = 'n';

This temporarily stops all extensions from loading, but does not actually uninstall them.

To uninstall any accessory, extension, or module, simply delete the appropriate row(s) from exp_accessories, exp_extensions, and exp_modules respectively.

You might want to turn on the Template Debugger first though, to try and find the culprit that way.
