Perhaps the work computer is set up to perform security scans of the USB
drive before it allows code to execute.

If you could get the IT person to disable the drive letter associated
with the USB drive and test it, you might notice a fairly good
improvement.  If you're on good terms with him or her, you might get the
anti-virus / anti-malware services disabled at least temporarily just to
test the theory.

Then at least you'll know it's not an Emacs issue.

I just got a 16MB usb-drive and it is just as slow for me on the
computers at work.  At home, however, I have a mac and emacs starts up
much faster (I put the OSX binaries in my usb-drive as well).  I'm not
sure this is a OSX vs Windows issue or a USB drive issue.  In theory the
computers at work are USB 2.0 compliant.
