Unknown "application" annoys by requesting focus all the time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I am experiencing trouble with my Windows Vista SP2. An unknown service or application (I do not really know) requests focus exactly everytime:

    1) I open a folder or pretty much any application

    2) I copy or cut anything (text, file, ...)

    It makes current application or folder loose the focus however application seems to be still active at the Windows Taskbar.

    As I was curious what had taken the focus I pressed ALT+SPACE combination to reveal basic window options that appear in the top-left corner of the window. However I just got options to either move or close the window. I naturally decided to close it. So I did and the focus came back to application which got it stolen from in the first place. But when I opened another application, folder or copy/cut something it made itself again and again stole the focus. I tried to move it using the move option and arrows after pressing ALT+SPACE again and it seems to move (even though I can see just the mouse moving but no actual window) and stay on the spot (and steel the focus of my applications) untill I close it and it creates itself again in the top-left corner of the screen again. How do I know it moved when I can't see it? Well I pressed ALT+SPACE again and the menu appeared on the spot I moved the thing to.


    I would very much appreciate any help because it really annoys me.
