I just started having an issue with my system for about a week now and unable to figure it out. Any and all programs I run will minimize to the desktop on their own, mostly games. When playing a game, the game will minimize and I'm right at the desktop. When I'm on the web, my browser will deselect on it's own. When I'm not using the system and the screensaver is up, it will go right to the desktop on it's own. All of these happen once every5 to 10 minutes, more or less. This issue started after my buddy and his wife visited out of town and used my computer while I was at work during their visit. I've never had any issues prior to them using my system and I don't see any major malware problems, but this is annoying. I've scanned my system with my AVG pro full subscription and get no infections or threats.

Thank you in advance....

I do not accept personal donations for assistance provided. I would ask that you instead consider donating the greatest gift - Organ Donation. Your organs are of no use to you when your gone. You will save a life that would otherwise be lost!
