Issue when typing in Word - Characters keep being missed


New Member
I have a Surface Pro on which I have installed Office 2010 (it's the version I need for work so has to be 2010).

When I am typing in Word it seems like approx. once a minute the computer has to think about something for a couple of seconds and any characters I am typing get missed. The swirly 'thinking' symbol appears and I can't type or move the mouse as though a background process is working.

This is now getting quite irritating as whenever I type a sentence I am constantly having to go back to fill in the missing letters.

Any ideas what this might be?
