Kaspersky is the reason for avp.exe. If you run the task manager there should be tow instances of it running. Do you have the latest version of Kaspersky installed?

Run a full scan with Kasoersky, and then an on line scan at housecall or symantec to see if you picked up any malware while downloading. If it continued being slow after the scans I would uninstall Kaspersky and try a free antivius program like Avast, AVG. or Microsoft Security Essentails to see if they cause you no lagging issues.

Try Malwarebytes to see if you have an infection that slipped past AV program.
Try Avast use free version, if you register it, it remains free.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
