    Alright, so I've had this PC for about three years now and this is a relatively recent (two months or so) problem of mine. Every ten to twenty minutes whatever window I'm using will either deselect, or in the case of full-screen programs, minimize back to desktop. I've tried updating my video drivers, making sure chat applications like Skype or Gtalk weren't running, uninstalling unnecessary programs that could be interfering, and following the whole clean boot process, and I haven't been able to exactly pin it down. I'm not hitting any keys or key combinations that would minimize windows or anything. I've been reading everywhere that AVG could be the problem, so before someone says so again, I don't have AVG. I use McAfee, which is turned off for the most part. I'm pretty much at a loss here, so if anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it.
