Microsoft Word lags when scrolling or editing documents

8 minutes ago, FMA said:

I'm currently writing my Dissertation/ Thesis and every time I try to scroll between pages or move images on the page its lags out and nothing changes for a second or two before everything happens at once. This is incredibly frustrating as you can imagine. Has anyone else encountered this problem? If so, how was this fixed?

 

More info:

The actual word file is around 71mb and its located in my google drive folder (in case I need an older version) on my Samsung 850 Evo.

My PC specs are on my page but in short I'm running unlocked haswell i5 (at stock speeds) cooled by a CM 212 evo equivalent and an asus gtx 1070

I had a look at my temps and they are in the 50s (Celsius) I even went as far as checking my task manager to see how the cpu usage was affected by it however it remains below 10% even though I experienced freezes on multiple occasions while it was open.

What about editing it in Google docs? Maybe reinstall word?

I have a few graphs that are linking to excel so google docs may not be possible, I'm going to try and reinstall office and then i'll restart my pc.
