Desktop flashes. loses focus

#1
Hey guys,:

I have a highly annoying problem with my freshly installed Windows 7 Home Premium and I hope, someone here can help me.

The Desktop and the Windows Explorer seem to switch focus all the time. If I klick on the Desktop, an explorer window will start to flash constantly. If I try to manipulate a file (drag it, rename it) I have to be extremely quick, because the desktop or the explorer will lose focus and reset my effort.

I tried to record whats happening and uploaded the video here:


I already tried to eliminate all running processes that I could identify to look for the source of this. Shortly I thought my USB mouse would generate the problem, because it stopped after I unplugged it. But today that doesn't help anymore. Even uninstalling it doesn't change it.
My Windows version is a couple of days old, I don't understand what I could have done

I have run out of ideas. Can you help me?

My resolution is and has always been 1280x800 on my widescreen display. It's hard changing the the resolution, because I can't keep the focus on the options window for longer than maybe a short second. But I tried a couple of other resolutions, even non-widescreen. Didn't change anything.
