My cursor clicks everything

I'm using an Acer, windows 10. I've tried disconnecting my mouse, reconnecting another mouse, Virus scans, lowering touchpad sensitivity and all I can think off but it keeps doing it.

Whether my mouse is connected or not/ and whether my fingers are touching the touchpad or not, the cursor flies around the screen clicking everything. Files open and close, my tabs shut down. Whole text passages are chosen. Please help me :(

You can rule out hardware by booting into safe mode. If the issue goes away then buggy software is likely to blame. Do you use any 3rd party help utilities? Also if you use some 3rd party driver installer stop using that and download your drivers from the manufacturer site.
