Browser Losing Focus to ? Only Other Window (<Alt-Tab>) Is Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7 Home Edition on an i7 machine.  I spend a good amount of time in the browser.  After a while, the browser icon turns clear and pushing keys has no observable effect until I click in the browser window.  I'll read some more other messages, but does anyone have some ideas about this problem?  Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    According to your description, this issue may be caused by third party tools or programs. That may lead to conflict with Windows components.

     

    I suggest to login with Clean Boot or Safe Mode with networking to see if the same issue occurs.

     

    Hope that helps.

  • Thanks very much for replying. Determining the culprit is slow because I don't know when I will lose focus. I am down to the last two startup programs and if I don't find it there I'll have to start over again. Steve
