Windows 7: Can't constantly type or scroll.

Can't constantly type or scroll.

Whenever i have any kind of window open, it keeps switching from being selected to unselected, thus me not being able to type or scroll whenever it goes unselected.. Anyone know what could be causing this? I've ran in depth virus scans and nothing has came up. Thanks

Does it do it in safe mode (F8)? If not it is probably a driver, or configuration error.

I wish I knew how my machine stopped doing that. It just stopped one day. It might have been after a clean install... **thinks back to when it stopped happening**

Try running in the command prompt SFC /scannow

Boot to safe mode should be f8 or f10 after the POST screen

Well to tell you the truth, it isnt doing it anymore haha. I tried typing that in and it said something about having to be an administator, so i restarted it and ran some tests and it came up with error 0333.

hmm... Can you try an elevated command prompt?

Type cmd into the start menu search bar, right click and select run as administrator.
