WebStorm works very slow

I have System requirements:

- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz

- 8 GB RAM

- x64-based Operating System Windows 10

But I works too slow. I have freezes on file scroll, slow file indexing after it's opened. I changed some parameters in webstorm.exe.vmoptions to improve perfromance:


But it is still luggy. What can I do to fix it?

I want to add one note. The average memory load is about 1400 MB. It's very bad...

Please try taking CPU snapshots when it runs slow. See https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241235-Reporting-performance-problems for instructions.
Also, how big is your project? I'd suggest excluding all dynamically generated folders (if any) from your project (Mark directory as/Excluded). Other directories you don't need to get completion from (auxiliary node_modules, bower_components, etc.) can be excluded as well.

Before update haven't had such issue. Last not slow working version was for me 2016.1.3. As of 2016.2 much slower without excluding.
