Check what your virus software is doing. Its not uncommon on slower systems to have a 15 sec or more non response time.

Look at disk activity, if you antivirus is scanning some big system directories you should see some activity.

I used to see a short pause on a 667 MHz system, not noticeable on 2 Ghz.
