I currently have two computers running Windows 7.  I chronically have problems with the maximized window losing focus, for example while running a video in fullscreen.  It happens roughly every 10 minutes.  It will still happen when seemingly nothing else is running.  Is there any solution to this?

When was the last time you cleaned it out, dust bunnies will raise cane with any system.

Can you give the make and model of these computers please, or publish a Speccy report for both.

 

 

problems with the maximized window losing focus . . .  It happens roughly every 10 minutes

 

I am not clear what is happening here. Does the video lose focus for a second or two and then return to normal, or do you have to shut the computer down and wait 5 or 10 minutes before you can start up again ?  Without a little more information, it is difficult to fix in my mind what is happening.

Hrm, maybe my last post was poorly worded.  The problem I have is windows losing full screen without my wanting them to lose fullscreen.  Example: Videos or games played fullscreen.

I'd be happy to do this, but I don't know how to give a Speccy report.  Not sure if this is even still relevant since I think my original question was misconstrued.
