Download Silent Runners http://www.silentrunners.org/Silent%20Runners.zip
1. Unzip/extract the file to its own folder:
C:\Silent Runners.
3. Right-click (to run as Administrator) the SilentRunners.vbs inside the folder or on your desktop
to start.
4. A message box will appear asking if you want to skip the supplemental
searches.
5. Press "Yes" to skip [default] or "No" to include them.
6. Another message box will appear saying: "Silent Runners has started. A
message box like this will appear when its done." The tool will scan your
system and create a log by default, in the same directory as the script or
one your desktop. The log is named "Startup Programs (ComputerName)
date/timestamp.txt".
7. When finished, the next message to appear will say: "All Done! the
results are in the file..." (it will provide the full path location of the
log.
8. Copy & paste the log in your next reply.

Note: If you have a script blocking program you may get a warning asking if
you want to allow the script to run. Some will say "malicious script
warning" or something to that effect. There is nothing malicious about this
script, you can click to allow it to execute.

A) Unplug the mouse and see if the problem continues
B) Bite the bullet and use System Restore

Thanks Kari., I saw lots of entries in the Silent Runners list for Groove so was wondering if that might be causing this.
