Uninstalling Groove Monitor or at least removing the check that allows it to run at boot.http://www.killertechtips.com/2009/05/10/groovemonitor-exe/
Uninstall Spybot or at least disable Tea Timer function, known to be problematical at times. I would replace Spybot with SUPERAntiSpyware, but that's up to you to decide.
I would temporarily remove the Rocket Dock application and see if the delays exist without it.
I would also check Event Viewer for any errors...that might provide clues to troubled applications or Windows functions.
