I already excluded C:\Program Files (x86)\Atlassian\SourceTree and my local copy of the repository from any scans and allowed sourcetree.exe and putty/pageant.exe through Windows Firewall, but sourcetree remains extremely slow. What else may I have to exclude from scanning or allow through the firewall to solve the performance issues without disabling my protection completely?
Apparently I had to restart my PC for the exceptions to take effect. The freezes are now down to 10-30 seconds, which is workable. Still not great, but I saw there are a lot of bug reports regarding slow performance, so hopefully it will decrease further in the next version.
