A couple of thoughts spring to mind. You've got a stuck key on the keyboard or the mouse scroll wheel is damaged. Can you swap out both of them and see what happens.

Changed my keyboard, that didn't help, changed the mouse and it appears to have stopped. Its something that comes and goes very frequently so I will give it a couple of days and update. Thank you though I really hope this was the problem. (It was an optical mouse for the record)

PC still working fine. The problem must have been a fault with the optical mouse.

Thanks
