Windows 7: On-screen keyboard click-through trouble

On-screen keyboard click-through trouble

I'm a severely disabled Windows 7 home premium 64-bit user. I have run into a problem with the on-screen keyboard. Whenever I'm in a 3-D accelerated game or application, any mouse clicks on the on-screen keyboard click through the keyboard and register as a mouse click in the application running behind the keyboard. For example, if I'm attempting to type in the chat window of the focused application via the on-screen keyboard, the first letter I click on the keyboard will type in the chat box. However, once I click a letter, the computer thinks that I have clicked through the on-screen keyboard and focuses on that area of the application I'm attempting to type into. It basically makes the keyboard useless. I have to re-click on the chat box in the background application for every letter I am typing. I hope this description makes sense. It's kind of hard to explain. Does anyone have any suggestions for this weird issue? I've only seen this in Windows 7.
