Hi,  I'm having a problem where

~ once every hour the active window I'm on will lose focus.

Sometimes if I'm typing or moving the mouse at the time another window will gain focus or focus will stay lost.. 

The time isn't exact and seems to be based on when I last opened my computer.


I'm using Windows 10.


At first i thought the problem was the OfficeBackgroundTaskHandlerRegistration task but after disabling it, the problem persists.


Any help would be appreciated, 

Thank you.

Hi, looks like a Windows device manager issue, not malware.. Post a new Win 10 topic.

In the meantime you can try creating a new user account and see if that functions properly.
