    I have recently installed Windows 10 and I have a problem with timing out on active work spaces. For example if I open up an excel spreadsheet and click on a cell to input data it keeps switching from being active to be non-active every 2-3 seconds. It also occurs with dialogue boxes and pull downs in data entry boxes. has anyone got suggestions on how to fix the problem?

    Thanks

    Ok. I used your guide and it opens Processes under Task Manager. What should I see?
