SourceTree not responding many times on windows 8.1


I am a proud user of Atlassian products, professionally and privately.

On windows 8.1 do i use SourceTree that i find this software really neat UI wise, no one else on Windows can beat that UI.
But i have this huge problem, what ever i do in SourceTree do i get "Not Responding".

This is a picture of my SourceTree, just in idle, i don't think it's many repos or changes to them.

My hardware is:

i7-4790k (devil's canyon)
16GB ram.
250GB SSD as OS.

I am lost in what it could be other than a bug in the Windows version.
