    I'm not sure how to describe this, but my computer is "pulsing". When it does my cursor disappears and if I am in the middle of typing something it stops midstroke and I have to reset the cursor by clicking on the document/page. When this occurs, if I am watching streaming video fullscreen it minimizes, so I cannot watch streaming video now because the picture will not stay fullscreen for longer than 10-20 seconds. This just started happening yesterday.

    Any ideas?

    you have some type of application stealing the focus of the video. What items are running on your pc when this happens?

    It does it even when I have nothing else running. Someone on another site said it's probably due to some kind of spyware, but I just ran a scan and it is still happening.

    This is really frustrating. Do you have any suggestions?
