Importing modules takes long time

I am using Python 2.3.4 with Windows 2000. It is a Pentium Xeon
2GHz with 1GB of RAM.

As the title says, importing most modules takes about 2 to 3 seconds.
Also, starting the interpreter takes 2-3 seconds (I think at the time it 
tries to import site)

The variable sys.path seems like the default compiled-in one.

I've tried reinstalling Python and it is still slow. 

What can cause it? What should I check?

Thanks ahead.
