Default delay after clicking on program icon

Recently I went through the malware removal process, and then installed AdvancedSystemCare v5.2.0 PRO. I am not sure if this is a result, but now there is a longer delay after clicking on a program icon. I have set ASCPro to work automatically. I can hear the hard drive constantly chugging through stuff in the background. Does this slow down my computer? Prior to this the response time after clicking was quite fast, but now it seems definitely slower. I looked at the task manager, but didn't really know what to look for.
I have attached an ASC Diagnostic report, if that's a help.
Please keep suggestions simple, as I'm fairly basic with computers.
Thanks.

Saw some other suggestions on similar threads about slow computers, so just ran the attached test reports using Speccy and Sentinel. Hoping I have supplied enough info to enable some helpful comment. Thanks.

Never learned where the real meat is in those Speccy reports, Everest is much easier to read and just as much info but that's my problem. lol
A simple way to tell if it is that app. Turn it off and see if your PC is faster. It looks like it is using 135 MB of your RAM, which is close to 3x more than anything else.
The same thing for any other apps, that you aren't using. Check your start ups. Disable any that are programs. You don't need anything but Anti Virus and system processes running at boot up.
The more things running, the slower you go.
I just removed a Bible Toolbar, from a PC. All it did was supply a daily verse, but it slowed that PC to a crawl.

Thanks Gloozit. Turned off the automatic running of Advanced System Care Pro. The computer speed returned to normal immediately. I will just run ASCPro once a week from now on. So simple, but makes a heap of difference to my computer. Much appreciated.
