So, whenever I am writing anywhere (A Word doccument, Firefox, Notepad, etc), after a few seconds, it automatically stops writing, and I have to click the text box again.

 

This is really annoying; I don´t know what´s happening

 

This started happening some weeks ago, and now I got tired of this, so I decided to ask for help.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

 

Have you tried using a different keyboard to rule out a keyboard problem?  If this is a laptop you can use an external keyboard to make this test.

 

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any yellow warning icons or red error icons?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It is a desktop PC, and I know that it is not my keyboard, because when it stops writing, the windows where I try to write becomes inactive for some seconds. And no, I haven´t looked at he device manager thought...I just checked my device manager, and everything seems to be working fine...

 

I think it´s a program that is doing this. But can´t find out which is it...

Run a clean boot, if this is a third party application causing this a clean boot can find the application causing this problem. 

 


How to perform a Clean Boot.
 
Warning:  Disabling items in Services or Startup may leave your anitivius disabled until the process is ended.  For this reason I would suggest that you perform this process off line.
 
Click or tap on the Windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the C key to open the Charms, then type msconfig in the search box.  This will open System Configuration.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, you should enter the password or provide confirmation. 
 
(1)  Click/tap on the General tab.   
 
(2)  Click/tap on the Selective startup option. 
 
(3)  Remove the check mark in the Load startup items  check box.

4.  Click on the Services tab. 
 
5.  Place a check mark in the Hide all Microsoft services check box, this will remove the Microsoft Services from the list but will still be running. 
 
6.  Click Disable all, this will remove all of the check marks in the Services list.

7.  Click on Hide all Microsoft services.  Click on Apply then OK
 
clean%20boot%202_zpsekds879g.png
 
Click on Restart in the window that opens.
 
When the computer is restarted it will boot normally.  
 
Let me know if the problem persists after restarting the computer.
 
If the problem does not continue after the restart please do the following.
 
8.  Devide the number of these services by two and you place checks in the first half of these, then restart
the computer.
  
9.  If the problem doesn't return in those services remove the checks and place checks in the remaining
services. 
 
10.  When you find which half the service is in go on to the next step.  
 
11.  In the half that the problem came back in you should remove the checks from the first half or the
services.
 
12.  Restart the computer.  If it isn't in the first half of these services, do the same with the last half of the
services. 
 
13.  Once you have narrowed it down to the last three or four services remove the checks one at a time till
you find the service at fault.
 
Once you have found the service post it in your topic.  Do not take any action until I suggest the next step.
