Windows 7: Hard to explain Laptop issue until you read.

Hard to explain Laptop issue until you read.

First of all I have a Windows 7 vaio 64bit.

To explain the problem I am going to have to explain the circumstances on which it occurs. Any time I am typing, using notepad, surfing the internet or watching videos the window suddenly becomes idle.
I'll explain "idle". So the window of the program is still there but it just won't react to my typing anymore... It's as if I had clicked outside of the window. The only way to get it to respond is if I click back inside the window somewhere and continue typing. Even if I have a full screen window, it still happens...
This problem occurs so frequently it has happen like 10 times while typing this.
It just doesn't happen when I am just typing. It may just randomly occur. Even when I'm doing something on full screen it takes me to my desktop. My computer. It is not infected with a virus as I have anti-virus program running and have done multiple scans of my comptuer.

THANK YOU for ypur responses

Hello Ruben and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might be able to use system restore to roll back your Vaio to a date/time prior to the problem first appearing.

System Restore

Since this is affecting several things (typing, watching videos, etc) your computer may have damaged or corrupt system files. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back if anything helped or not.
