    when ever i try to do anything the active window become inactive and needs to be clicked on to use it. Is there anything to do about it? I know that it isn't a virus because multiple scans have not found anything. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium and the problem is only recent. thanks

    Try to restart your computer and maybe you shut down the active effect

    bicycle bill,

    Tweak UI is quite old and was made for XP and previous Windows versions. Have you ever tried it on Windows 7 or Vista?
