When streaming video's on youtube or Twitch my CPU usage skyrockets and the audio from the video becomes distorted and stutters. I've tried virus scans with malware bytes and advanced system care but to no avail. I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows in the hopes that would fix the problem but it still persists.

Thanks in advance for any help :)

I would start with uninstalling Advanced System Care.  It is an "optimizer/registry cleaner" program and BC does not support the use of such by anyone.

After removal...I would run the chkdsk /r command, followed by running the sfc /scannow command.
