Since Windows 10 I have had to set Sonar/Cakewalk as an exception in my anti-virus to stop it from weirding out. I had pops and clicks, disappearing now-time line, midi notes that wouldn't play, projects that all of a sudden wouldn't allow me to add any audio tracks, etc. But setting it up as an exception in the anti-virus pretty much fixed it all.

However, if you are resolute in getting a new DAW, I would recommend Studio One 4.5 Pro. For tracking and editing purposes, there is a reason a lot of Pro Tools guys are either switching or at least dipping their feet in that water. Plus you'll get a kick out of switching presets in instruments/plugs with playback running and the program not glitching or temporarily freezing at all.
