Well, I removed the USB key and it was still not responding only it was much worse. It would stop responding for about 15-20 seconds whereas before it was only for 3-5 seconds. Therefore, I reinserted the USB key and used it under the Windows recommended usage of dedicating 1805 MB for optimal performance.

I also have Tuneup Utilities 2010 running with the "live optimization" feature turned on which is supposed to optimize memory on the fly, when needed, and "turbo mode" which is supposed to help with response time.

I turned both of these off and tried it with and without the USB key and still the same non-responding issue. It was much worse with these two things off too, so I re-enabled them.

Anything else you can think of, I would greatly appreciate hearing!
