For the last few months I have had a problem with my computer. The top window will, of it's own accord, become unactive and I have to click into the window with the mouse to be able to enter information into the window. It doesn't seem to matter what program I am working in, from Excel to Simply Accounting or even my email program. As I'm an accountant, it's become a huge pain when entering numbers to look up and find all info I've typed has disappeared into the ether. I am running Windows XP Professional (latest version, update regularly) on a 3 gig processor, with 2 gig of RAM. I have a Logitech cordless mouse and keyboard installed which work fine (other than not allowing me to utilize the hot keys), Does anyone have any idea what the problem is and how I can fix it? It's driving me CRAZEEEE!!!
What also could be the case is that your KB and mouse are giving you this headache since you are not allowed to use the hotkeys. A fix could be to update the drivers for them. Which type of KB you have?
What you could do is the following : ( to rule out malware issues)
Sorry it's taken me so long to reply... it's that damned tax season!!!! So far I have tried SUPER Antispyware and come up with NOTHING but I couldn't figure out how to get into safe mode so I did it in normal. I suppose that's good tho'. I will try your other suggestion as soon as I've fed the beast that is our government. Thanks again for all your help!
