I could be way off-base here and just flat-out wrong - especially since I have never used an ASIO interface with Pro Tools, but I think in order to use that ASIO4ALL driver that you appear to have loaded - you will also have to have a WDM driver loaded for your Mbox mini to be accessible through it.
Again, I could be wrong here, but it just seems like that is two hoops to jump through to get audio from your interface to your audio software, which could actually induce even more latency. I'd think you'd be much better off to just use the AVID drivers for the Mbox that allow it to show up directly in Pro Tools as an available interface.
Can you just turn the "mix" knob on the Mbox to the left to be able to do direct input monitoring of the microphone without it passing through the computer - thus eliminating the monitoring latency all-together? Just a thought.
