Photoshop CC lagging after latest June 2015 update

I recently updated my Photoshop CC on my HP Envy 23 computer that is 64 bit and has all the specs to run Photoshop without any problems, but after the update I have been unable to get Photoshop to run without severely lagging up to 5-8 seconds in everything I do, from opening a new file to drawing with my Intuos Pro tablet. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Photoshop and creative cloud as well as my tablet driver to see if that would fix the problem. Nothing is working. I need this software to do my job as a Digital Illustrator. Please help me figure out why it's lagging all of sudden when it was working just fine before the latest update that came out this June 2015.

I have tried going into my program files to see what's wrong but I apparently can only find the 32bit version of Photoshop, and I can't find the correct version that should have been downloaded to my 64bit computer.

How do I fix the lag problem? Is it because I have the wrong version installed? How do you choose which version to install, when Creative Cloud just does it automatically?

Photoshop hasn't had an update since December. (15.2.2)
Are you confusing the Camera Raw update (which did happen a few weeks ago) with a Photoshop update? And the Camera Raw update would only have an effect if you used Camera Raw -- it can't have an effect on the rest of Photoshop.

You can only download the 32 bit version for Windows manually, or if your OS is 32 bit only. The default download on a 64 bit OS is the 64 bit version of Photoshop.

Thanks for commenting! If what you say is correct about the latest update, it seems I must be having some sort of issue with my computer itself. Now that I know it probably isn't Photoshop that is causing the problem, I will be contacting HP Support to figure out if something is going on with my hardware or any updates I recently added to the computer itself. Thank you again! I now have at least a lead of where I can start to solve my problem. :)
