This may happen if you have a faulty mouse. After some time (one or two years) the metal spring in the mouse button wears out and when you click the mouse button once, it is pressed multiple times causing the click to be registered many times. So when you click on a program once, it actually gets clicked many times. So my suggestion is first you should start by replacing or trying out a new or different mouse.

Thanks for the advice, I have tried another mouse and the problem is the same.

In that case, it may be malware infection. Please post a new topic in the section : Am I infected? What do I do?

You could also try changing another keyboard to see if that works first!!

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
Never argue with stupid people, they'll just bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
If at first you do succeed, try not to look surprised.
