[Unresolved] Windowed mode application stuttering

I have copied and pasted this information from another thread on a different forum.
 
Note: I do not think that this is to do with a virus, but this is the only section I can post logs.
 
So lots of applications that are not in fullscreen mode start stuttering and they also experience intermittent freezing. This only happens with certain applications however, it does not happen with Google chrome but happens with every single game I have played (I play all games in windowed mode as I have dual monitors) and it also happens with Skype and Teamspeak, and I assume many other applications that I just haven't run since the problem started occuring.
 
When the problem started:
The problem started roughly 2-3 days ago while in a game (Arma II if that helps) - I do not believe I updated or downloaded any new software shortly before the problem started.
 
Detailed description of the problem:
The entire screen goes grey for a millisecond (as if it is about to say 'NAME has stopped responding') and then for another millisecond the desktop flashes through the window (as if the opened application quickly disappeared and re-appeared) and the icon for the application in the taskbar will disappear and then re-appear shortly after at the end of the taskbar (after the other open applications) as if the entire application has reloaded.
 
When the problem occurs:
The problem seems to occur when left clicking in these windowed applications, but it does not happen all the time and it may happen repeatedly after one left click. It is as if it is conflicting with something in the background, I use rainmeter, windows dreamscene and circledock for my desktop, and other than that have nothing on my desktop; the problem still occurs after closing rainmeter and circledock and disabling dreamscene (anyway I have used these 3 for much longer than the problem has occurred).
 
EDIT:
I use a Sharkoon Darkglider through my mouse and connect that through the usb slots on my Razer Lycosa Mirror keyboard. I have had the keyboard and mirror for a while though and never had this problem.
 
EDIT2:
Plugging the mouse directly into the USB slots on the tower does not prevent the problem from occurring.
 
EDIT3:
It doesn't just happen on left clicks, it happens by itself at an increment of roughly 2 seconds, but only affects the window I am currently on.
 
I'd like to be able to stop the applications from stuttering, putting them all in fullscreen mode is just a temporary fix for me.
 
Any help is appreciated :)
Thanks in advance
~L
 
P.S. I don't know if this thread is in the right section, so please inform me if it isn't.

Log from combofix
Spoiler
It deleted CircleDock even though I knew that wasn't causing a problem :/ oh well
 
TDSSKiller log
Spoiler
 
Problems that occurred:
TDSS had no problems and after the scan found nothing to fix
 
ComboFix stayed on stage 49 and 51 (just saying that 48 complete, and 50 complete) for about 30 minutes and then 10 minutes respectively
 
The computer now:
The problem still persists, however I believe that it may be slightly better. The stuttering and reloading still occurs, but it seems to recover and reload more quickly.
 
Thanks for your help so far
~L
 
EDIT:
I have also found another "symptom" is that when you click an application in the taskbar, occasionally it will not restore (un-minimise) on the first few clicks, it will just do nothing. Also the application may do the previously mentioned reload thing when left clicked.
 
 
 
 
I changed my graphic card settings:

The problem still persists.
 
Here is my results from the
JRT SCAN:
Spoiler
 
and ZOEK (even though ZOEK didn't fully finish because turned out to put malware on my computer so stopped it)
 
Spoiler
 
Really need help with this issue, it makes many games completely unplayable. Lots of other people have this issue from what I've seen on Google, but there is not a single solution that I can find. Also the problem is not virus related.
 
EDIT1:
 
The problem report for my computer is:
 
Spoiler
 
I will try and see if fixing this will stop my problem.
 
 
EDIT2:
Reinstalled my video card drivers and the problem still persists.
 
 
If anything seems unclear its because I took it all from the other thread.
Thanks in advance.

Seeing as DDS stands for doesn't do squat, I attempted to run it once but it did nothing so didn't bother running it for more than 5 minutes.

I do have my windows 7 CD still.

As you previously said, this does not look like malware is involved.

Try these fixes.

The SFC and clean startup didn't fix it.

Thanks for your help :)
I'm going to repost in the forum you suggested.
