While I was off for a moment, my dad managed to install YTD video downloader on here.
Now after rebooting the CPU usage would go up and things like clicking on the start bar or dragging the vertical bar in the task manager window started to get interrupted almost immediately, as if I'd double clicked.
I removed YTD Video Downloader but this particular issue still persisted on the next reboot. I did notice this seems to be a Chrome related issue as I had both Chrome and Firefox on at the same time and disabling one of the Chrome processes in Task Manager stopped this weird phenomenon from happening. I did notice that at about the same time I got a message on the side of the screen talking about "synchronisation".
I did a system restore, deleted YTD Video through the Add or Remove Hardware feature directly instead of running the uninstal from the window, then used CCleaner to delete things and block a few isolated things which may or may not be related as they seemed rather minor.
Now as for the things I see mentioned in relation to YTD in various forums and online tutorials, I did not find any folder with the title of Spigot in the files, nor any Searchsettings, Searchsettings64, nor Application Updater like this person for example
As for the Toolbar, I found it mentioned in the list of Programes, as well as via UnHack Me but both tell me that the programe could not be found, I'll post the exact quote when the full scan I'm running now is done.
Currently running a full scan with Malwarebytes. I know this forum preffers ADWCleaner but that one seems to hang for me when I push scan or delete, basically getting stuck.
I'd really appreciate if someone can help me figure things out, as the various places I go to, be it forum threads or invidivual pages talking about this almost all have different programes they suggest.
