Hello, thank you for viewing.

I'm currently experiencing a strange problem with my laptop. Whenever I certain gaming program run in the background (not in focus) the applications seem to shift back and forth from from "Running" and "Not Responding" almost like it constantly refreshes itself (every 3 or so seconds). However, if I keep one of those programs in focus, the problem doesn't occur as often. The task bar always seems to be moving as a result of this (almost doing a dance if I open enough programs that have this problem).

I've tried updating drivers, installed all service packs, scanned computer with Malware Bytes, Norton... nothing seems to fix the issue.

I'm using Windows 7, 64 bit 6.1 (7061), ATI Mobile Radeon HD 5650

I hope someone has some info on this, thank you for your help!

Tried it on a fresh new user account and things went smoothly. I guess my older user account was corrupted somehow! Sorry for any inconvenience.
