A few months ago any Window I had open would deselect and select themselves making typing impossible. I started using combofix which seemed to fix the problem for a session but would come back the next time I booted up, I don't know what the log from combo fix means but it works. I ran combofix today but it didn't fix the problem so I'm desperate to find anyone who knows what is causing it so I can finally fix it, thank you :)

Possible stuck key(s) on the mouse or keyboard. You can try to tap each key on the keyboard a few times to unstick the key, the same goes for the mouse. Generally the windows key, Alt key or Tab key may cause this issue.

I started using combofix...

You should not use Combofix on your own or without supervision.  Please read this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/#entry1511502

Combofix is not meant to "fix" general computer problems.

Is this a laptop or a desktop? If it is a laptop, I frequently see people have problems with the touch pad on the computer. What happens when typing is that your palm may hit the touch pad which performs a left click, if you are typing in a small window, clicking outside of that window might un-highlight that window. The mouse cursor also may "jump" as a left click will move the cursor typing field to where ever the mouse click happened.

 

If this is a laptop with a touch pad, there may be a way to turn the touch pad off by using the FN key + one of the F1-F12 keys.
