Every time a window is open, whether it is windows explorer, browser, or application. Every few seconds the window is deselected, you know when you press anywhere on the taskbar and the opened windows gets shaded a little pit, causing the opened window to be deselected, that is exactly what is happening with me every few seconds automatically, and it is very annoying like when I am typing this text right now, every 2 or 3 words it deselects the window and I have to press with the mouse on the text to continue typing. Or when scrolling down, it freezes and I have to re-press with the mouse to continue scrolling. I tried windows anti malware, I tried the original updated version of ESET Nod32 4 antivirus, I tried Baidu antivirus. I scanned my whole computer, and I deleted anything that could be a threat, yet nothing happened. And I know it is some sort of virus or malware or trojan something like that, not a pc related issue, because it began to do this, when I put one of my friend's flash drive in my pc. So please if you know anything about this thing please help, you don't know what it feels like to take 15 mins to write a text like this when I can write it in only 3 mins, because it is constantly deselecting the window and I have to repress with the mouse to write.

I'm thinking it is more of a mouse or keyboard/ touch pad issue. Do you have a Live Linux DVD or flash drive that you can test with?


Try scanning for malware and adware using the programs below. Disable ALL antivirus programs before scanning.


Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).

  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
  • Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.
