    Hi

    When I surf the web, the window lost its focus... I have to push a button to get the window in focus again...

    Someone other that have this problem?

    you have another application in the background stealing your browser's focus - ? malware, antivirus or web program?
    get the free process explorer from Sysinternals to check for the culprit program, probably hogging CPU and RAM as well.

    haven`t seen it take some of the cpu or ram.

    The only thing I use is Antivir. The free one. AnyDVD.

    I have closed these aplications.... But still, these happens...


    Kindly

    Thanks for this - I've had the same problem with Win7 for months now and it's been driving me crazy.

    I ran the tool and it showed the active window change to Ad-aware when it lost focus so I'm currently uninstalling ad-aware to see if it resolves the problem - fingers crossed!

    I did find the Spy tool a bit flaky, it worked for a while then kept hanging, but if it worked long enough to identify the problem I'm happy :)
