[SOLVED] Graphical stutters during animated elements.

Hey guys newbie here.

So my mouse runs smoothly and fine in windows normally unless it has to animate an element, IE if I go into my steam library and mouse over elite dangerous it animates the banner and when that happens the steam cpu usage spikes upto 20% and the mouse movement stutters.
Another issue is certain random context menus are invisible until I mouse over them, GOM player for example, the playlist will be invisible unless I click the region the playlist is, and then it becomes visible.

These issues started to crop up around the time I updated ExpressVPN But I doubt thats it and more likely, my nvidia drivers. During the last install I let it perform a clean install and installed geforce experience.
When I load up elite dangerous (I only use this game as a good example as it can replicate the problem easiest) its launcher has an ad for ingame content you can buy, it is static, then it animates as it shows the next ad, my whole pc stutters during this animation.
I have tried going and disabling windows performance things like slide windows into view and the windows animations but it hasnt helped at all.
I also updated to the drivers released yesterday and to no avail.


Current A/V Avast Free (problem continues both disabled and enabled)
My specs are.

W10
GTX980
16GB DDR3
2TB HDD

Hello

Sometime the most updated graphics driver cause trouble due to hardware incompatibilities, and rolling back to an earlier built resolves the issue.

Another thing that you may want to check is Windows and BIOS updates.

Please try the above solutions and see if they help.

Feel free to report back for any further assistance.

Cheers!!
