Windows 7: Random active window focusing issue

13 Apr 2013   #11

Windows 7 64bit Enterprise


I did uninstall everything Windows Patch wise this month and did the above, the problem stopped yesterday but has reappeared today, the strange thing is that I removed Ad-Aware last night and the problem reoccurred this morning after restarting. I suspect this is unrelated but something I think should be stated

Ok try running ccleaner CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download make sure to back up the registry first. So use ccleaner to clean the registry.

Delete done, ran ccleaner and the registry clean through, just waiting to see if this re-replicates itself.

Mr Tiger what suggestions does your I.T. Department have to solve this problem.
The reason I ask is your specs show Enterprise as your operating system.

My IT department are quite frankly uninterested in resolving this issue, despite it being an annoyance when writing documents or emails. Hence why I've taken to looking into this issue myself on my own time.

I imagine you suspect I'm running a dodgy Windows Install hence the questioning?

No it was just a question because most I.T.Departments really don't like employees changing how things work and this site normally recommend not over riding a I.T.Department.
