This is too general.  I use Emacs 24.3 on Windows 7 for many months,
and never saw anything like what you describe.

Did "emacs -Q" exhibit the same behavior?

If it's Windows related, how come it doesn't happen to me, or anyone
else who use that same version on Windows 7?

Do you have networked drives?  Do you have a Net Logon service enabled
on those machines?  If you set garbage-collection-messages non-nil, do
you see a message in the echo area announcing GC when these hangs
