Outlook loses focus whilst composing email
I have Outlook 2007 running on Win 7 Pro x64, connected to a remote (hosted) Exchange Server.
From time to time, when I'm composing email, Outlook seems to lose focus on the active window. This is frustrating as you end up typing away but the text doesn't actually appear in the mail.
If you wait a few (10-30) seconds focus usually returns, but you have to re-type everything you missed. Alternatively you can force focus to return (if you notice the behaviour) by clicking back in the window.
A couple of colleagues have noticed the same behaviour - all with Win 7 x64 and Outlook (one reports the same behaviour with LiveMail) - so I was wondering if it's a known issue, and if any work-arounds are known?
I have already tried disabling Windows Search, both within Outlook and by shutting down the Service, but that seems to make no difference. Neither did disabling my AV solution (MSFT Security Essentials...)
Any help or advice?
