Is your computer joined to a domain? Win32_Group and similar classes enumerate both local and domain accounts / groups, so they can take a while.
If you specify that you are looking for a local group it goes much faster, like this:
Get-CimInstance -Query "select * from win32_group where Domain='$env:COMPUTERNAME' and Name='Administrators'"
