Windows Weird hangs and OS issues


I am new to GameMaker Studio 2 (and game maker in general) and for some reason, GMS2 will sometimes lock up and run at a constant 25% cpu and do nothing for minutes until I kill it (this happens when creating a new project). Other times, it works just fine and runs with no issues.

Another strange thing that happens is that when I click on chrome on my start bar, the mouse jumps up and to the left and the flyout menu pops up instead of restoring the chrome window. Before you say this is OS/driver related, do note that this ONLY happens when GMS2 runs, and has NEVER happened when it is not running; and I've used this computer for 4 months solid.

Windows, and all of my drivers are up to date, and I have Bitdefender AV which is fully up to date with no infections. Visual Studio 2017, and every game I own all run just fine.

Is this a common issue? Any suggestions/ideas?
