As I understand that you are facing a slow performance issue with Lightroom. Please update Lightroom to CC 2015.12/6.12 update also, you may try turn off the graphics processor from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps.
Steps for turning off the GPU
Open Lightroom > Edit menu > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck the GPU > Restart Lightroom.
The processes which are running in the background is important to run the creative cloud desktop app services on your machine along with its applications.

You can always try disconnecting your Internet cable or disabling your network. I do that quite often when I get fed up with masses of programs all doing something that I've not asked for! I had a friend who ran LR and PS on a dedicated computer that was only connected to the internet for updates, a few times a year. He used a laptop for email etc.
You can also try disabling the CC Desktop program in your Startup folder, and just enable it again when you hear that there is an update.
Thank you for your answer, Mohit. I just updated to CC 2015.12, so I'll hope that will correct any issues. I'll also try turning off the GPU if I experience the slow-down again.
Also, thank you, Bob. I'll try your suggestions as well.
I appreciate your help—both of you!
