Question: why is my macbook pro running so slow after this latest update?

MacBook Pro 2012

MacOS High Sierra version 10.13.1


Computer was responsive and doing great but I started receiving update notifications. So I updated the computer 5 days ago. Now I’m getting rainbow wheels, reluctance to open programs, and occasional black screens. What the heck is going on? Ran a cleaning program but that’s made no difference.
