The fix included in Act v18.1 resolved this issue for 99% of our customers. I can understand it's frustrating that this has not applied to your particular machine, and I apologise for that.
There is some advice for high DPI displays in the following Knowledgebase article: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/26349
It would be worth trying the suggestion from the Surface Pro 3 section:
Right-click on the Act! application icon; Select the Compatibility tab; Check the “Disable display scaling on high DPI settings” checkbox
Some further best practices for using Act on high DPI displays can be found here: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38200
If the problem persists, I would suggest troubleshooting issue further with an Act support technician over the phone, or an Act Certified Consultant.

I have tried all the fixes for ACT as far as upgrading to v18.1. There is no fix for me. I will just have to deal with it. How can I go back to v17? I am currently running v18.1 on trial basis. How can i go back to v17? I don't want to pay for the upgraded version if it doesn't work.

You can install v17 on the PC using the original download link you were sent when it was purchased, and activate it with the serial number.
You should have a backup of your v17 database from your previous installation, or one that was taken just before you installed the v18.1 trial. You can then restore this database into Act v17.
