I doubt that Java is the reason for your slowdown.  On the other hand, I've seen more and more recommendations to get rid of Java because Oracle doesn't appear to be very adept at keeping it free from malware attack. 

I suggest that you uninstall it from Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.  If it later turns out that you need it in order to make a particular web site or application function properly, just go to http://www.java.com/en/ and download the latest version.

When you used CCleaner, did you use the registry cleaning function?  If so, that's a much more likely suspect for having damaged your Windows installation.

What tools did you use for your a/v and antimalware scans?

Are you up to date with Windows Updates?

No I didn't use any registry cleaning function I just use CC to remove temp files and cookies. I use Avast Pro for anti virus Super antispyware(free) and malware bytes for malware. Up to date with Windows updates except for .Netframwork
