I'm also curious since it happened to me again recently. I'm still convinced Windows Updates has nothing to do with it since I haven't any Windows updates of any kind installed since December (actually, I restored an image from December on my machines since several updates since Decembers were breaking them and I got fed up).

I've 0nce faced a delay as described.
It wasn't an update file. It was the SEARCH for update that was running forever and kept the computer so busy that was causing the delays.
So I set, under services, WU to manual and on WU page to never check and the problem has gone.

That's how my computer is set. Still happens.

Antivirus can block an action till it ends a scan.
Do you have Malwarebytes?

Yes, but there is no report of a scan popping up after one of the brief freezes.

Unfortunately antivirus is a "must have" despite I had never had a virus on my computer. All them slow down the computer.
On an old laptop with Win XP I found out that with antivirus and it's low memory, it's quite impossible to use. It has no antivirus and it works fine. (made a disk image for backup, just in case.)
I think a good firewall is more important than an antivirus. I have almost 10 attempts every day blocked by the firewall.
