Try starting in safe mode and run scan disk and defrag. It is probably something that is running in the enviornment like virus protection software.  Let us know if this works.  I do not think it is because you uninstalled anything.

Hope it helps

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
