Visual Studio Focus Problem

Posted 07 March 2013 - 08:59 AM

I have a serious problem with my visual studio 2010
suddenly yesterday it began a "Losing Focus" Problem

I mean when I open visual studio it starts to lose focus every few seconds which is really annoying especially while writing code

and not just visual studio, but all other applications they start a loop of losing focus every few seconds

But, once I close VS 2010, everything goes back to normal again

I searched a lot for a solution but I found nothing

And I think it has nothing to do with the installation because Vs has been installed for more than 3 weeks and this problem only started yesterday.
And, also I didn't install any application or service on my windows yesterday or the day before.

There is only the update for my wireless driver which was installed 3 days ago so I don't think it has anything to do with the problem.

Any Ideas?

Sounds like you need to run a good anti-virus or PC Tuneup utility.

I've also seen this a couple times and it turned out to be the PC thinking I had the ALT key down when I didn't. So every TAB became ALT+TAB and rotated me to the next application. It just got confused by me switching my KVM between several computers rapidly. Try pressing and releasing each modifier key (Shift, Alt, Control) one at a time so it registers the KeyUp.

Do you have a KVM on your system for multiple computers? Or perhaps the sticky keys option engaged?

Ok. I'll try your idea of installing a tune-up utility and see what it does
I already have an anti-virus (Bit Defender 2013)

I don't have any KVM
I just thought it is something about VS 2010 itself because as I said when it is running this "losing focus" thing is in all the running applications but when I close VS 2010 everything goes back to normal

If it were VS then there would have been a huge outcry years ago by thousands of users.

I've used VS10 on WinXp, Win7, 32bit and 64 bit for years before upgrading to VS12. It doesn't exhibit these symptoms on its own. And it certainly doesn't lie in waiting for 3 weeks then start doing it just to mess with people.

You've got something else at play.

It just fixed itself :D
I mean even before I install the tuneup utilities
Just like that

Anyway I uninstalled it and installed VS 2012
