    Hi,

    I double click an icon to load an application. It would take it ten seconds to load. In the mean time I'd like to continue working on something else, but this app keeps popping top most windows and stealing my keyboard focus.
    Can I set win 7 somehow that an application would never be able to steal focus unless I switch to it?
