    Default Vista switching windows auto?

    Strange problem this one!I have recently updated my drivers and installed BF3 - i have no idea if this is the cause, but recently i have been experiencing:a. When browsing, if i have a few windows open, i may be reading one page, when without me touching anything it will flip to another window.b. When in Steam, be it a game or just browsing through the Steam pages, it will switch to desktop - not crash as the game will still be running, just switch to desktop - v annoying.Any ideas what i have done?!

    mmmmm, looks like it's nothing to do with Steam. I left my browser open and checked my emails in another window - i started reading an email and 5 minutes later the view switched to the other open window!

    I timed this and it does the switch every 5 minutes - wth is causing this?!

    Might be worth running Malwarebytes to check in case there is something there - If you are using a PC do you have a different keyboard you could try? Could be as simple as a short or resistor on it's way out in the keyboard.
