I have windows 10, krypton is installed and works fine.
But it started having problem with exit. When I try to shut down or exit it takes long time. It wasn't like that.
It used to shut down (exit) right away.

Also, how can I remove unwanted Addons? Youtube was added which I didn't install.

Long shutdowns, I usually attribute to networking and waiting for the other side of the connection for no good reason or some errant add-on. Is the interface disappearing quickly 5-10 seconds or does it hold up the screen? Run windowed mode, check with processes explorer looking at the properties of Kodi and what's holding up the works. A debug log will have some clue if it's an add-on. Best way of diagnosis is to run a 'portable' install with nothing loaded, and just open & close... at least that is what your system performance allows. Of course a debug log (wiki) should be informative.

Youtube could be loaded for its dependencies, a regular add-on is eliminated in the information panel, with un-install.

It's probably all the banned addons (wiki) phoning home...
