Hi folks, I really need help on this. Now every 1 or 2 min, my programs will lose focus. If I'm playing a full-screen game, it will minimize, and often results in regrettable deaths. I tried alt-tab when it happens just to see what was stealing focus, and it was an IE window which doesn't appear on screen even when i alt-tab to it. It disappears after a while.

I ran a log using HJT to pin point the problems. Will really appreciate if some experts can help me on this.
Thank you.
