I have an annoying problem. When using any application the application stops, such that anything I type stops being put on the screen page. I have to click at the task bar (out of the application) and click on the application again to get back. Then I have to click the location of where the last text was entered (where additional text should have been but was not caught).
Also when playing Call of Duty, the windows cursor suddenly appears (probably about every 10/15 minutes or so) and to get back to the game I press the Windows key and double click the right mouse to get back.
I also notice that when this happens there appears to be a quick flash of a windows tab on the task bar, which I have never managed to catch to see what the problem is.
I have norton firewall and antivirus, use adaware and more recently TCMonitor and TCActive, have a registry cleaner (Registry Booster), Burnt Cookies to stop cookies. Everything being clean. (although there was a Cold Fusion trojan which TCActive/TCMonitor found, which I deleted) and I cannot catch whatever is doing this.
Do you have any idea what the problem is or how I can determine what it is that is causing this? This has been going on for a couple of months now and to my recollection it didn't start when I downloaded anything (I try to keep my pc clean and don't download too ofen and even then from what i think is a reliable source) I have W2000 prof with Office XP
I really appreciate your help
