Windows 7: IE 11 having issue with open window staying active

IE 11 having issue with open window staying active

Hello,

I am having an issue with Internet Explorer 11. I noticed a few weeks ago that when I use IE 11 that I keep having to click on the window to keep it active, even if I have no other windows open. If I open IE 11 window and start typing a login somewhere I get 4 or 5 characters typed in then window goes inactive and I have to click back in the text box to finish typing my login. If I am browsing I sometimes have to click back on the window somewhere to continue scrolling on a page.

This is getting annoying so I would like to find out a fix if possible. I do have Firefox and Chrome that DO NOT have the same problem. I use different browsers for different tasks and would like to resolve this if anyone can help.

Thanks so much.

Hi,
Post some screen shots of the Toolbars and extensions you have installed,
On the bottom left column make sure you're set at Show all add-ons

Thanks
Yep you're stacked up :/
Anything with BHO disable
Oracle Java well that also should all be disabled
All Not available listings should also be disabled and even Silverlight.
Definitely Coupons Inc disable.

After that restart your computer and see what's up.

It looks like one or all of those things were causing my problem. After doing those things and disabling the roboform toolbar I do not have the issue. Thank you for your help!
