I there anything else I can try? Because I want to do the repair install as my last resort.
Visit the following web site and read through it;

Uninstall Uxtheme Multi-patcher 8.0 Completely - How-to Removal Guide

I advise against using 3rd party tools in these situations. Many of them are nothing more than snake oil. There is a FixIt download link (see image) which is a MS tool in the article; it may be worth a try.

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll have a look.

Also, just to add, I think the delay is not caused UTP...

Yesterday, I decided to turn off my PC for nearly a whole day and now turning it on, I'm not experiencing the delay.
To add on, I usually turn on my PC and leave it on for at least 2~3 days straight without turning it off or putting it on sleeping mode. During these time I restart my PC time to time for fresh start and its here that I experience some delays.

Does this have something to do with the delay?

I am not certain I understand your statement. If you mean that when restarting the system and immediately using it you experience some delays, that is the opposite of what normally happens. Reboot/Restart usually results in better performance because there is less load on the computer.

Download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

*** this may take some time, so be patient! Also, you will notice while TFC is scanning, you will only see your desktop background .... no shortcuts or folders will be showing.

I don't get it either... But I'll try to explain it clearly:
- I always leave the computer on (with no shut down or sleep mode whatsoever) for 2~3 days straight. During this time, when I try to restart the system, I sometimes experience the delay on taskbar
- However, when I completely shut down the PC and leave it for a while and boot it again, the delay is gone

I don't know why but, it looks like leaving the PC on for several days straight might have caused this delay on taskbar which, even restarting the system won't fix this delay. I'm not sure...
