PC slows down, specifically can tell on Youtube/Twitch. Help :[

My PC begins to slow down at random times, I can tell in some games as well when I have Spotify open and the song is changing. I've had my computer for awhile and it never had this problem before until Windows 10. I went from Windows 7 to 10 with a fresh install. I see the slow down and (kinda) robotic sounds coming from Youtube videos and Twitch streams specifically since it's easy to replicate.

At this time, I'm running scans from this guide : http://www.tomsguide.com/faq/id-1691891/removing-malware-proven-completely-remove-bitcoin-mining-malware.html , and also I have Bitdefender and MalwareBytes installed.

I really need help. D: I tried researching before making a post, but I'm out of ideas and doing a complete reinstall of Windows 10 again would be pretty annoying. Any ideas friends?

Thanks for any and all help! <3333

EDIT: Also noticed that when I open up my Task Manager my CPU spikes super high and then go back to "normal", I don't know if this would help in any way.

    Mine does that every time i open task manager. The spike is caused by you opening task manager :)


    anyway, have you got the latest drivers for your motherboard and GPU?

    Speaking of Bitdefender, it can slow down Youtube if set wrongly: https://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?s=208ed90965c77114bb31bdaeaad292bd&showtopic=57365
