Any "speed up your system" utility programs help so little that you won't notice anything. Most will actually slow down your system, or are fake spyware. Uninstall whatever you put on there, and install Malwarebytes and scan your system with it.
With any luck nothing major happened to your system, otherwise it's off to the re-install of Windows for you.
