Has it always done this? If not, it could be some things running in the background like spyware causing the pause.

When I got my mini 9 from Dell, it paused quite a bit and I hadn't even installed anything so I did a little research. I found this thread quite helpful and performed a few tweaks which got rid of the problem:

Solution : Core SSD's freezing and stuttering(WinXP) - OCZ Forum

Hope it helps.

It will help some, but I doubt that is the cause of your problem.
