What will it Do to Computer if can’t Completely Uninstall CCleaner?

Issue described:

When I open Task Manager (Windows XP) and then click on "Processes" I noticed that the CCleaner program seemed to be using a large portion of my operating system(ccSvcHst.exe). I have had the program installed for over a year and it has worked well, but I noticed that my system was running slower and decided to delete some of the large files including CCleaner (temporarily). I went to my Control Panel and deleted the program from "add/remove programs". When I went back to Task Manager and opened the column for "processes", I noticed that CCleaner was still there and that it had the largest "I/O Read Bytes" by far on the entire page...over 26 Billion I/O Read Bytes.

I have installed CCleaner for nearly 4 years and recently I want to remove it from my PC temporarily. But when I try to remove it from Programs and Feature, there is something wrong – it gets stuck during the uninstallation process. I have tried several times, but the problem persists. I don’t know why this happens and how to resolve it. Can anyone help me?
