The fact that your apps run well in safe mode points to your malware protection software as the culprit.
What I found on Windows 10 (and posted about a few weeks ago) was that creating an exclusion for the DXLab applications in Windows Defender helps tremendeously.
Windows' native malware protection is not DXLab friendly. I thought I had done so by creating an "directory" exception for the entire DXLab directory but I found that
making a "file" exception for each executable was necessary, and made all DXLab applications run much faster.
If you are using Windows' built-in malware protection, go to settings->updates and security->Windows Defender->Open Windows Defender->Protection->Settings->Exceptions.
(They may be called other things in English, I'm running a Swedish Windows.)
