try to stop as many open programs as possible before opening the game, or start up the game before your friends do, also it may be an issue with your internet connection not the computer

post your computer specs
and what kind of internet connection you're using

well according to the hdd info you posted this is a 20gig hard drive? am I correct? If it is then more than likely its an older, slower hard drive. with only 3 gigs free you may not have anough free space to properly defrag your hard drive as well.

I know that from playing games like call of duty or battlefield 2 that load times were long. I updated to a nice western digital drive with 8mb cache and 7200 rmp. made a huge difference in load times for the game.
