Windows 7: Active Window Toggles/Flickers

Active Window Toggles/Flickers

The active window toggles or flickers for the lack of better term; about every ten seconds the active window flickers and while this is happening all control via the keyboard and mouse stops. The mouse forgets what it was doing, and if I was typing it stops and sometimes the text becomes highlighted when I start typing all of the highlighted text is gone.

I would really appreciate any ideas or suggestions.

Here is the system information:

Windows 7 Enterprise, 64-bit, Service Pack 1
DirectX runtime version 11.0
Xeon E5-1620 v3 @ 3.50GHz
16.GB RAM
Nvidia Quadro K4200

Shaking the active window
