Have you looked in Task Manager or Resource Monitor?
It is slow when for example, using Chrome, opened 5 tabs, one and youtube and it lags when I'm using another tab to browse the web. Or using photoshop and firefox, then switching between them is very slow (a few seconds)

There is not much stuff running when I look in the process.

In a second I'll look at the diskmangement.

In the meantime you can UPLOAD the three files as opposed to pasting them.
Evaluation is much easier when working with the uploaded .txt file.

The procedure I gave gives a link to how to upload a file.
thanks

Oh yes, please also use that upload procedure to upload the diskmanagement.png file.
thanks.

I see 14 things running at startup.

How many of those need to be running all the time?

You might try it with only Avast running, via the checkboxes in the startup tab of msconfig.

Intel 4004,
Glad to see the uploads.

First thing is:
Please update your CCleaner.
Then you will have the tab for Scheduled Tasks so that you can also upload that file.

Will be looking at the uploads now.

You can find out how necessary they are by unchecking them.

You can later go back and recheck them if some desired functionality is missing.

Most necessary applications will start on an as-needed basis and simply don't need to be running all the time.

Uninstall:
Code:

Bonjour    Apple Inc.    11/1/2011    1.02 MB    3.0.0.10

µTorrent        5/3/2012        3.1.3
REBOOT!

Since i can hear you screaming from here:
1. If you must use Avast, then at least used the pay version. I strongly recommend, I install, and I use exclusively MSE, Microsoft Security Essentials.
2. Filezilla is known for being unsecure and a source of malware.
3. Virtual Clone Drive has a habit of interfering with programs and slowing down a system. Oh yes, filezilla and VirtualCloneDrive I've used.
4. BonJour is known troublemaker.
5. see below about torrenting

REMOVAL OF P2P PROGRAMS

There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

References citing the risk of using P2P programs:
How cyber criminals infect victims via P2P with pirated software on Vimeo
Malware: Help prevent the Infection
Perils of P2P File Sharing
How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

I strongly recommend that you uninstall:
µTorrent
