Hello, thank you for your help thus far, I really appreciate. Sorry for the late response as coursework deadlines have come and gone and I had to work late into the night for about a week. I ran TFC though no report is produced... So nothing to post about that I guess. I ran it again and copied what was cleaned if you want me to post that though.
I ran ESET and these are the results:
C:\Program Files (x86)\LenovoBrowserGuard\LenovoBrowserGuard\bin\cltmng.exe a variant of Win32/Conduit.SearchProtect.I potentially unwanted application deleted - quarantined
C:\Program Files (x86)\LenovoBrowserGuard\LenovoBrowserGuard\bin\SPTool64.exe a variant of Win32/ClientConnect.A potentially unwanted application deleted - quarantined

Good old Conduit... I am skeptical though about both Conduit and InstallCore being found, for Malwarebytes should have easily have found these Malware, but never did. I did go on a potentially suspicious website yesterday (don't judge me please) which was called DragonBallClub. On this site you can watch Dragon Ball Z episodes. However, Google diagnostics and AVG both class this site as perfectly safe, and I have used it in the past with NO issues. I just thought I'd highlight it in case it is relevent, because even if it is not... I am shocked that Malwarebytes would miss those Malware, for it has found them in the past (on a different laptop for InstallCore, it has found Conduit before which I shall explain below). Also, though a browser hijacker, Conduit did not actually "hijack" the browser at all. I would not have known it was there unless I had scanned with ESET.
Regarding Conduit, I do have another issue to draw your attention to. Believe it or not, this laptop seemingly came infected (despite it being new). Malwarebytes was one of the first things I installed on the laptop. I had not done anything at all, not visisted any suspisious sites. The only websites I had visited was (obviously) Malwarebytes to download it, Facebook, Youtube, Runescape and Debate.org. I had not (I do not think anyway) that I had at that point, put any external data onto my laptop. Yet upon the very first scan on the very first day upon receiving this new laptop, Malwarebytes found Conduit (again it had not actually hijacked anything). I think it is just worth a mention, do you know what could have caused this? How can a laptop come already infected?
I then ran Rkill:

Seeing as this software stops Malware from hiding from scanners, I assume by when you stated you run it twice, I do so after I scan with other scanners? Anything in particular that I should use? Or should I just got through every step so far again.
Regarding problems solved:
Runescape runs faster but still has a lower FPS rate than it should
Youtube functions fine now
No random internet connections at home
About the problems still here though. I only recently discovered this one. But at university, my laptop (after infection from Faster Light etc.) refused to connect to the university network meaning I had no internet access there. However it does now, but not quite as well as before. The connection is weaker, after reverting to "limited" and sometimes webpages take a long time to load.
The laptop does mostly run ok again thanks to your assitance. My main issues lie now with (A) a poor connection when at university and (
a lower FPS rate than usual on Runescape. I shall reinstall RS to see if any difference is made, as well as clearing out the cache. I shall probably also get CCleaner. I did have it, but obviously with the Factory Reset it was wiped off.
