My Question or Issue
When I play a song/change the spotify volume half of the time it takes quite some time to respond to my actions (upwards oh 20 seconds), this is definately not a Wi-Fi issue because I have a 100 mbps Wi-Fi speed. And this is not a RAM issue (I have 12GB) and I never find it 100% used on the task manager. I have already tried clearing Spotify's cache, turning off 'Hardware Acceleration', and switching between Spotify on the windows store and Spotify on the native installer. Now I suspect this has something to do with Spotify connect because at the time when the problem started I connected my phone to Spotify but I also just formatted my computer at the time, another idea is that because I am using a dorm's Wi-Fi there are about 40 devices in Spotify Connect I think this might make it so that spotify has to sync my music between all the devices (not sure though). Thanks in advance.

No that's not the problem I have. My Spotify didn't use any RAM/CPU space, the problem was that Spotify itself was slow to respond to actions. I figured out the problem was AdGaurd (it blocks ads by blocking connections to ad servers) I just whitelisted Spotify from AdGaurd.
