Space used on the hard drive is not a likely cause of your problems. You want at least as much free space on the drive as your largest database for backup/export reasons but it will not cause performance issues. The biggest factors for performance are CPU speed, amount of RAM, and HDD/SSD speed as mentioned previously. Chances are your HDD is 5400rpm (most laptops are), your CPU is not an intel i5/7, and your RAM is 4gb or less.
See these FAQs for possible performance improvements:

Also another reason for me to go with PT4 is that I believe that they can connect with Winamax which is where I like to play cause of how soft it is and good software, and HM2 cannot or atleast in the supported sites list for HM2 it is not listed and for PT4 it is
HM2 supports Winamax (http://hm2faq.holdemmanager.com/questions/781/Winamax+Setup). It is in our supported lists on our FAQs. We are in the process of updating our store's 'supported sites' lists as I write this as they have become a bit out-dated due to the fact that each product/app has it's own list instead of a shared list.
