Hello, this is my first post, I did a search trying to find a solution for my particular problem.

My problem is, that if I have an application or window open, it either drops to tray ( minimizes ) or my cursor drops from it.

examples, If I'm writing text in word, note pad, or even email online, at random moments my that window and the active window on my desktop becomes unhighlighted ( frame turns from blue to grey )

If I have a Game running, it will minimize to tray.

this happens randomly, but regularly, every 1-5 min.

I'm running Windows Server 2003.

What I have tried so far:

* I have run full Antivirus / Antispyware
* I have shut down all ( non server applications )
* I have run a Registry Cleaner.
* I have switched Keyboards.

What makes this more difficult, is that the PC needs to be running all the time, I can restart it, but I cannot have it off for long periods of time. the system has been running without problem for over a year.

what may I have done to cause this problem? yes I have installed misc software and removed them. yes I have updated Misc software. other than that no new hardware has been attached.

( BTW my cursor dropped twice while writing this post )
