    Hey everyone I have my Surface Pro 4(i5 Core/8GB of RAM/256GB of storage) and had it for over 6 months now.

    But I have been getting this stupid slow down problem recently only in the last 2/3 weeks all of the sudden my Surface Pro 4 would get slow and laggy in things like selecting/highlighting a desktop program, opening and closing programs, switching in between programs and navigating around the Windows interface and more for absolutely no reason and I don't understand why I am getting this because the CPU is always 10-0% and most of the 8GB of RAM is not used up in the task manager. :mad:

    And to make this stupid problem stop and go away temporary is that I have to shut down the device and boot it up again and everything goes back to normal and running fast again but about 4-7 days after rebooting i get the stupid problem again as I describe above for some bizarre reason!! :mad:

    And I have Avira Anti Virus software installed and it says that I don't have any viruses on my Surface Pro 4.

    And this is really really annoying now as it has happened 3 times now in the last 2/3 weeks and because I definitely don't really really keep on restarting my Surface device like every few days just to get it back to normal and running fast again and before this month I have never had this stupid problem on my Surface Pro 4, So in the last couple weeks I have started getting this stupid slow down problem.

    To be honest I am completely clueless and I don't really know why that I am getting this stupid slow down problem on my Surface Pro 4....???

    So everyone I really really need some help!!! How to stop and get rid of this stupid slow down problem that I have been getting on my Surface Pro 4 recently?? Have you ever had this stupid slow problem on your Surface Pro 4?? o_O

    And the option that i won't do is to factory reset or wipe the whole device which I definitely don't want to do that!!!

    No ideas - you may need Microsoft to have a look at it.

    As for me - my Surface Pro 4 had lots of issues but the main one was related to sleep. I've long since sold it.

    Probably need to do a windows refresh, if not a factory reset. Sounds like Windows is getting hung up on something, or a program is slowing something down.

    You are not on the insider preview, are you? I had that's some problem when I tried out the insider preview.

    If you are not on Insider preview, you could try rolling back to the previous update of windows.

    A Surface running continuously for 4-7 days? Why not reboot it daily?

    Stop looking at porn... no seriously, something is wrong with it. Bring it to the store and have it checked out.
