Hello, i am new here so forgive me if i do any mistakes. So basicly yesterday i returned to my pc after 20+ days and did a ton of updates without a problem. However today when i opened the pc i noticed while browsing and more specifecely while scrolling down that chrome kept switching focus like i had to click again inside the window to scroll again and it kept happening again and again (even while typing this every 2 seconds i have to click again here to type, very frustating). So i started checking stuff and noticed in task manager that there was a conhost.exe and 2 more kept opening and reclosing again and again which i believe is the reason why my pc loses focus. For the last 10 hours i have been searching and doing things like running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, avast,comondo i have also been unistalling programms like itunes(because someone with similar problems said it had a connection with the issue) also reinstall java (for the same reason with itunes) but still the issue continue. Right now i am thinking of formating so i am in desperate need of help because my pc is a needed tool for my job.
P.S. i followed some steps of this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/473516/dozens-conhostexe-and-schtasksexe/ and now i cant run process explorer it sais "unable to extract 64-image. Run process explorer from a writable directory." just in case.
Edit the momment i finished this post and typed enter only one conhost exists and i dont have the focus problem this happened again a couple of hours ago but when i restarted it was back again :(
