Hi guys and Happy holidays! So this a kind of new issue for me that drives me crazy!Since Sunday my PC keeps alt tabs once .It has happened in OveWatch and Nba 2k18 but I am sure that it will happen in others too.The weird thing is it only happens once in every launch of a game(one time when I played OverWtch for only 20 minutes it didnt even happen),when it alt tabs I go back to the game and it doesnt happen again.In OverWatch I don't have a big problem of it happening because I get back to the game in 2 seconds but in Nba when it happens,when I get back the controller doesn't respond in-game(it says "press start to re-enable the controller",then I do it I can start and stop the game and change options but I can control my team).It is a issue that was happening to me last year with fifa and maybe 2k but not in sych extent.The things I have done are:
1)Update my Radeon drivers
2)Reinstall my Avast Antivirus and Adobe Acrobat DC
3)Go to Event log but I didn't understand much
When this happens I see no notification in my task bar and it's not like I have many applications open.Just Steam or Battlenet and Avast.I think it started occuring the time I updated Avast but I may be wrong.The only two things I have thought that could be:
1)Avast because even though I have the gaming option enabled I don't see right away Windows Update automatic scans being disabled.But that was happening and before I think but my main suspect is Avast
2)Adobe Acrobat Update Service.I saw this process running today.I don't think it's very likely this causing it since I have Adobe Acrobat DC for two years with no problems so it must have been running all the time not just now.
I can't think of anything else .Any help will be appreciated!
