Computer being choppy and slow on start-up


So recently, I got wallpaper engine and everything was normal, a few days later every time I turned my PC on, it is really choppy and the mouse will move on its own after moving it really fast. Also, every time I shut down or restart it, the screen will turn off but the PC itself won't actually power down for some reason. I uninstalled Wallpaper engine and I'm still having the same problem. To actually power it down I have to hold down the power button on the PC instead of doing it directly from Windows. When I turn it back on, it says please wait and then it loads up to the lock screen and everything is perfectly fine and it actually shuts down correctly. So now every time I turn the computer on, I have to manually shut it down and then power it up again for it to run normally. When I try to restart it on the first "power down" it says 2 apps are preventing restart/shutdown, and I'm not sure what they are. It ends up closing eventually but not the PC itself.

Any help is appreciated!
