First post on here, but from searching on Google for fixes, this looks like a great place for advice from some knowledgeable people - Please be gentle with me!


I have an issue with my Windows 7 Machine whereby the focus of windows is quickly jumping on and off. 


It causes issues when bringing up right click windows explorer options, also when typing, like when creating a new folder, the focus removes itself from the 'New Folder' text in microseconds before I've had any chance to give it a name.


Another symptom is the curser in Win 7 has the spinning loaded next to it, almost all the time... as if an application is loading after just being double clicked. Looks like this, next to the mouse pointer:



I've got Kaspersky Internet Security, which has done full scans on all available options with no fixes found. 

I've tried ComboFix incase it was a bootkit issue as this thread sounded similar:



I've also given Spybot-S&D a go, which has cleared some temp internet files up, but nothing fixed the issue


Can anyone suggest some additional steps to get to the bottom of the problem please?
