Question Youtube search bar will freeze, will catch up 15-20 seconds later and input anything I have typed in that time.

I solved the issue. It was my anti virus Kaspersky.

had to do this,
Settings → Additional → Network Settings → Uncheck “Inject scripts into web traffic to interact with web pages”.

Pretty much what my title says, I will go to type in the search bar on youtube. It freezes I continue to type then 15-20 seconds later it will show up.
Youtube is the only place this happens, every other search bar is fine.
I have disabled hardware acceleration.
Cleaned my cookies, cache.
tried other browsers, chrome, firefox edge, they all do it.
Updated and re-installed my drivers.
