I've seen this happen on DC's with antivirus file scanners running on them.  If this is the case, try excluding \winnt\system32 from realtime scanning.

Also, try running Task Manager before you start the MMC that hangs (usually ADU&C) and set the priority of the MMC that's hogging the CPU to Low, that could allow it to complete starting up.
