ok so we found the culprit at least, the add-on caused the issue to begin with, however it remained a problem after 'uninstalling' of the addon right?
Uninstallers are notorious for 'not uninstalling'. I suggest you run Ccleaner to find any remnants of the addon.
There are probably a few files/entries it failed to remove from the machine.
for giggles i looked into the environment x and saw a bunch of posts on their forum with people having similar issues. I suggest checking those out.
