    Mouse acts as a controller

    Back in september 2016 i bought a logitech g502, everything has been fine until now.
    A week ago it started acting as a controller in certain games such as The Witcher 3.
    The game would say "Press A to skip" but would go back to "Press Enter to skip" as soon as I unplugged the mouse.
    Also, windows becomes much less responsive when plugged in. for example:

    - Deactivates the windows button (the one on the keyboard) (pressing it wont open the startmenu)
    - Cant switch to programs by clicking on them in the taskbar
    - Search function doesn't open when pressed.

    And the lists goes on.

    The funny thing is that this happens every computer that I plug it into.
    Tried on my new laptop (MSI GS73VR) and it immediately produced the same effects.

    I've tried:
    - Installing new firmware on the mouse
    - Reinstalling drivers
    - Renaming xinput1_3.dll (someone said this could work)
    - Multiple different USB ports

    The problem exists somewhere on the mouse or in the software on it.

    Currently the only solution I see is throwing the mouse in the trashcan or launching it into orbit with a trebuchet.

    P.S. Never owned a controller, so it isn't some other software playing games with me.
