It seems that every time that I leave my computer so that it locks and then I have to reenter my password, I find that when I come back my mouse starts to act like an autoclicker. When I put my mouse over certain options, it'll look as if I'm clicking very quickly, and thus some applications will attempt to open multiple times if I click on one of them. Otherwise, if I put my mouse over the options like in the start menu, as soon as I go over something like shut down without clicking, it looks like it clicks on it for me, as shown in the video here:  I currently have a logitech mouse, which I just changed to a week ago, and have found that this problem has persisted through my previous Razer mouse, but did not always occur every time I left my computer so that it locked, only now it appears that it happens every single time now. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I already replaced my razer mouse with the logitech mouse, and the problem persisted throughout both mice.

Just a hunch you have a driver issue, I know this is a bit of a pain but I would delete the mouse drivers.  Then you will need to "tab" your way and shut down, windows will replace the driver with the generic window driver when you boot back up.
