And also worth trying to disable some of the unnecessary service in your task manager. 

Someone o the net share the below solution too:

In your first screenshot, the two applications which are overloading the system are Soft Thinks Agent service which is the Dell backup utility and McAfee on access scanner.

It's not necessary to have the backup running on startup. See here for more info:

For Dell user; Another worth trying is on task manager > services > stop Dell's related services.

And worth noting to stop all Adobe services related too. - Malaysia's programming knowledge sharing platform, where everyone can share their finding as reference to others.
