Your data should always be backed up. Short test is fine for now unless probs found.

I could go and buy some backup drives but for now it is alright for a fast test? Nothing will be deleted?

Also restarting the computer have doubled my CPU or something because I am doing the exact same thing but the CPU does not go below 50

As stated earlier there is a Troubleshooting step for drilling down into CPU processes.

Your data should always be backed up if necessary to the cloud using free method linked at bottom of this post.

I have a bit more than 7GB to back up though.

The problem has returned, seems like that restarting the computer makes it dissappear for a day. So you've told me to back up driver D and C but they have more than 7 GB which as far as I understand the maximum amount the cloud can store. Should I buy a storing device before starting the scan?

You should have one anyway, anything you don't want to lose should have at least one backup.

Alright, I will buy a storing device and then I will start a scan.

Will probably be able to buy the item in two days but in the meanwhile I would like to ask why does this problem usually happen? Does it make sense that it is because I now use a DVI cable that the problem appears? Could it be either hearthstone or chrome suddenly requiring more CPU? The problem now return every few hours and I find it really weird.
