    In the past few weeks, my Surface has been running very slow. There's lag in IE, and basic gestures are very slow (like swiping for charms bar).

    I am fully up-to-date, I've defragged my drive, and I've run windows defender.

    Anyone else have problem? Any solutions?

    go to pc settings(metro UI)->update and recovery->recovery->refresh your pc without affecting your files (tap on get started ) , this should solve such issues. Also try to use disk clean-up and deleting internet explorer history

    BEFORE YOU REFRESH, check two things:

    1. Ensure you have over 3 GB of free disk space.
    2. When it is laggy, check Task Manager and look to see if Store Broker is eating up CPU. Kill the process and see if it helps.

    See this thread for details and Store Broker fix: http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...low-laggy.html
