LC on Windows - slow for others or just me?

I use LC 9 on a Surface Pro 4 Machine, it is almost unusable. Everything is
as slow as molasses. Typing a script sometimes takes many seconds to
respond and it even goes as far as missing keystrokes. Trying to drag and
drop stuff onto the stack is also horrible. I don't have any plugins
anymore, this is a fresh install.

I've been using this machine as my main machine for more than a year. LC is
so slow for me (on a fast machine) that I go for my old mac sometimes to
work. I have the impression that I am the only windows user here.
