Very Slow "Save As"

I am having this problem using the "Save As" feature in any office application where I click on File then SAVE AS, and then you get a pop up asking you to browse to where you would like to save the file to. When I click the drop down arrow to start browsing I get a delay of about 20 seconds before I can actually start browsing as it looks like the application freezes for this time. Is there any reason why this happens? And if so how can I fix this?
**I also have the same delay when I type in an address in IE, only after about 20 seconds does my page start to actually search for a webpage**

INFO
----
I am using WIN 2k with office XP, and when I do the same tasks on my older 95 machine this does not happen.

Thanks for you quick answers experts,

Hi Atwill33, the open/save dialog could give a delay since it has to seek on the disks and align it all in a tree even the thigns on a cdrom cdwriter it could be that withouit a cd in the drive it will be faster.....

i know this is pretty far off, just a suggestion
