Did you go through the CCleaner guide and perform those steps? I recommend cleaning up a few things as the first step. Let me know if any questions and if it is running better after performing the following steps.


Step 1:

Remove McAfee Antivirus with the following tool and only use the built-in Windows Defender. For best results run the removal tool in Safe Mode:




Step 2:

Remove the following programs with free version of RevoUninstaller as follows:


Ashampoo WinOptimizer 16

IncrediMail 2.5

WildTangent Games

WildTangent Helper

  1. From the list of programs double click on The Program to remove
  2. When prompted if you want to uninstall click Yes.
  3. Be sure the Moderate option is selected then click Next.
  4. The program will run, If prompted again click Yes
  5. when the built-in uninstaller is finished click on Next.
  6. Once the program has searched for leftovers click Next.
  7. Check/tick the bolded items only on the list then click Delete
  8. when prompted click on Yes and then on next.
  9. put a check on any folders that are found and select delete
  10. when prompted select yes then on next
  11. Once done click Finish.

Step 3:

Restart computer and test
