Windows 7 Professional - Problem: Certain programs loose focus (freecell, NoMachine NX client for windows) Windows Updates fail, unless I visit the Microsoft page and download and install updates manually I'm not sure why certain applications loose focus. I've been looking for a solution, but everything I have read has said look for a program that takes the focus. I can't seem to find any program that does take the focus, I am now stumped. I first noticed the problem after installing and cleaning my computer with Uniblue Powersuite 2009 (SpeedUpMyPC 2009, RegistryBooster 2009, and DriverScanner 2009). I am not sure if the registry cleanup or other cleanups performed by this program caused the problem, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to mention it. Any help would be amazing, since I use the NoMachine NX client (remote desktop application) to connect to my schools labs. (also windows update fails - but this may be unrelated and is not a very big concern for me) Thank You in advance Here is a link to a youtube (20 sec) clip of the problem in action!!!
