    if I was having this issue I would first remove avast or totally disable it ,and see how things work ,if no change I would reinstall it
    I would then suspect hardware ,I would start with checking the harddrive for errors ,then my ram for errors ,

    could you go to control panel ,and open system and post a screen shot of that info .
    check tutorial if you need help posting a screen shot

    Sorry I've had quite a busy day but I did try uninstalling Avast and the problem persists. I will do the disk check of the hard drive and check ram for errors and get back to you.

    That was pretty fast!How did you check your HDD,was it Download Hard Disk Sentinel or maybe HD Tune website?
    Did you run Memtest86 for checking your RAM?
    Have you stressed out your GPU with https://unigine.com/products/valley/ ?
    What PSU are you using,brand and wattage would be helpful and overall,please fill in your system specs...

    So I just decided to try plugging in a different mouse into my computer and the problem went away. I'm still not sure how my mouse was doing what it was doing it is about as simple of a wireless mouse as it can get. In any case it definitely beats having a problem with any of the hardware inside my computer and thank you all for the assistance.
