    Really Annoying Computer Problem

    Hey B-S,
    I need a bit of help, my PC keeps on 'deactivating' my browser window every minute or so. When I say deactivating, it sort of makes the window act as though I clicked away from it making anything I am attempting to type not type and instead just cause shortcuts on my computer. I really struggle with putting this into words so I'll make an example picture: pc-problems.jpg. It is really frustrating and occurs regularly every minute and causes me distress when speed typing or gaming as the SPACEBAR on my PC deactivates my Wireless Adapter causing me to lose connection.

    If anyone can label this process sensibly so I could search it up elsewhere or suggest what is occurring to trigger this and ways to counter and stop this from occurring, I would be a very happy bunny, indeed.

    Thanks,
    Double

    Retired with no intention of returning. Don't remember me because you won't see me often.

    Use Firefox / Aurora.

    The problem only occurs on my PC. I use the same version of chrome on my laptop and that works without this problem.

    It is because another program is stealing the focus. This can be with an error message not showing, internet reconnecting, wireless/usb mouse/keyboard etc. I would start with running a virus scan to see if it's because of a virus. If it's not, then check your active programs.

    Tried it, same problem. Next brilliant idea?

    EDIT: So it's my plug in wireless adapter that's doing it. Any idea how to stop it doing it?

    Unplug it?

    EDIT:

    Ain't I having brilliant ideas? Add me on Skype if you want me to try to help you.

    BUMP! You never got around to helping me after that Skype conference of yours. I continue to have the same problem.

    Does this only happen with your browser? Or does it occur for any program you have open?

    I only generally use my web browser however it doesn't seem to occur while I am using Microsoft Word.
