On my computer, my background-running security and monitoring software often causes pauses within explorer operations. This might be a cause in your computer.

Don't forget to stream-line your AV and AM protection. I use Emsisoft AV/AM as the main gate-watcher. I don't have any constantly scanning/logging, scanning/logging operations going on in the background except for Emsisoft.
