"My Computer" takes over 5 minutes to load

Original title: After clicking My Computer it takes awhile for the icons for my hard drives to show up (Over 5 minutes), when trying to find a file in iTunes & other programs.
OS:Windows 7
Issue: Viewing "My Computer" when, for example: Trying to upload a file in the normal Open Folder/File window.
Programs such as Firefox, Google Chrome, and even iTunes, will hang(For over 5 minutes) when I click the "My Computer" icon on the
left of the window (Other icons include Homegroup, Network, etc.-Which none of these icons hang at all)
My computer is not old, its very fast and I have no other issues.
Quad Core CPU, SLI Graphics, Plenty of HDD space, 4GB Ram, etc.
etc.
In other words, it should not hang at all.
No external devices are plugged in, all drives are SATA drives including the DVD drive.
