Safely Remove Hardware - Long Lag Time

When I want to safely remove some hardware I click on the icon located in the system tray. However it takes about 60 seconds for the option for me to remove the hardware to come up. I have tried it with various pieces of hardware plugged in (and unplugged) and I get the same thing result. I'm using a Dell XPS M1330

Any ideas?
