Win 7 Ulitimate x64 - Signature Edition
 
 

Since the "Always On Top" feature is not built into Win 7 you must have a 3rd party app causing this behavior.
Have you tried right-clicking and unchecking "Always On Top"?

Imperfect1 is right though, we need to know which programs are doing this. All of them? Or just one?

happens with all programs
the focus is always on 1st program opened
If word pad is open and I want to open another program the focus goes to word pad not the newly opened program
