Computer is running slow since I used Antipuper for popups

I had a problem with popups above my system tray as well as advertisements for various adaware programs when I opened my browser. I ran Antipuper and that completely killed my popup problem but now I am experiencing a ridiculously slow system. Everything takes forever to open and doesnt run properly when it is open.

I then downloaded Security task manager because I figured the problem was that a program was running in the background. It came up with a couple of potential threats. The first is called hpDB5C.tmp, however, windows says it cannot find the file, but Security Task Manager says its running. The second potential threat is dva.386. Not sure what this is exactly.

Are these causing the slow down or is it something else? Thanks for your help. Also, I have a couple of other posts, if you could disregard and delete them. I looked for them but only found one that has been closed. Thanks again.
