    Recently I've noticed when I open a new window in anything FF, IE or any program (mbam, SAS, HJT, Word, etc.) nothing happens until I either click on the window somewhere or hit Alt+Tab. Example. Open home page in FF. Cursor is blinking in Google search box. Unless I left click on the Google search box, nothing happens when I type. I also note the box for that particular program or browser in the taskbar is colored Orange and usually blinks about 3 times in sync with the window doing a similar thing, then stays a steady orange. This can also be fixed by hitting Alt+Tab.

    Its not a big deal, but somewhat irritating. I'm used to just opening my browser and start typing. When I do that now, the Google search box stays empty.

    Anyone got a fix??
