Hello,

Have a problem that started about 2 weeks ago. Seems that every two to three minutes the top most window looses focus and the cursor moves out of sight. I've got to move the mouse to get the cursor display then click on the window I was working on to regain focus. It's a real pain in the ^&$&.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hello Arthur,

Welcome to BC.

It looks like this is something to do with a background program, or could be due to not responding application.

Try Running a Anti-Spyware Scan get the help from Spyware Removal & Malware Self-Help and Reading Room.

Also check with any recent software or hardware added to your computer.

Best Regards.

Hey

I have the same problem, ive ran norten and ad-aware and niether has fixed it.

I have noticed it will only do it when the internet is connected and also if I hit alt-tab right after it happens somtimes i can see a program that i have not opened.

Its a real pain espicially if your typing a report and youve haven't noticed that windows is not focused on the progrom anymore.

just wondering what ad remvover programs the poster used or anyone would recomend other then the 2 i have already used.
