Windows 7 Switches Programs
Posted on 2009-12-29
i'm having a weird problem that I have been unsuccessful finding answers for in the Internet. I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit edition on a Toshiba laptop. I typically use the laptop on a stand with a Logitech DiNovo wireless keyboard.
Ocassionally, the PC switches from one open program to another, usually when I am clicking something. Here's an example:
I have Microsoft Outlook 2007 open. There are four columns. The right is Mail. The next is Inbox. Then Reading Pane. The last is To-do. Typically, I'll single click on an e-mail in the Inbox column to have it display in the Reading Pane. Usually, everything works the way it should. But sometimes I'll click on an e-mail in the Inbox column and suddenly it switches to an open Internet Exlplorer Window. This doesn't only happen with IE, it also happens with other programs, but less frequently. I'd say it happens about 10 times a day.
This behavior didn't happen when I first started using Windows 7, leading me to believe that something that I installed may be the culprit. But there isn't any way for me to know what could be causing the problem and the only remedy would seem to be to reinstall Windows, which I would like to avoid having to do.
Does anyone have any ideas about a solution?
