    Everytime I Click on a Submenu in a Program it Automatically Switches


    [Windows 10 PRO (2H22 19045.2965), 2018 HP Pavilion] Everytime I Click on a Submenu in a Program it Automatically Switches Back to the Main Program Window Over and Over Again

    I keep having this issue with a new PC I got where programs (such as windows explorer) will randomly start flickering and whenever I have a submenu opened in a program (like the user preferences on Blender) it keeps minimizing the submenu and forcing me back to the main program, does anyone know what's going on?

    The PC was used, but factory restored, I've updated everything including drivers, even uninstalled and reinstalled everything and factory restored it multiple times and nothing has helped, I tried searching everywhere but I can't find anyone having the same issue as me

    It doesn't affect multiple programs, only multiple windows of a program, it makes games and programs completely unusable, and it breaks windows explorer and makes it flicker like crazy then restart

    Please help I've been asking everywhere online and I wasted so much money on this thing just to have it basically be rendered unusable

    The log looks fine and doesn't reveal anything,
    Next step is to gather events, perhaps one of them will help identify a problem...

    Follow steps below to share event logs:

    1. Right click on Windows button and click on "Windows PowerShell (Admin)"
    2. If prompted for password, enter administrator password and click "Yes" to continue

    3. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    ni -ItemType Directory $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\ | Out-Null
    Get-EventLog -LogName System -EntryType Error | ? Source -ne DCOM |
    select EventID, TimeGenerated, Source, Message | sort TimeGenerated -Descending |
    fl > $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\system.log
    4. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    Get-EventLog -LogName HardwareEvents -EntryType Error, Warning -Newest 200 -EA Ignore |
    select EventID, TimeGenerated, Source, Message | sort TimeGenerated -Descending |
    fl > $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\hardware.log
    5. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    Get-EventLog -LogName system -Source user32 | select EventID, EntryType, TimeGenerated, Source, Message |
    sort TimeGenerated -Descending | fl > $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\shutdown.log
    6. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    Get-WinEvent -LogName Setup | select Id, TimeCreated, LevelDisplayName, Message |
    fl > $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\setup.log
    7. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    Get-EventLog -LogName Application -EntryType Error, Warning |
    select EventID, TimeGenerated, Source, Message | sort TimeGenerated -Descending |
    fl > $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\application.log
    8. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    Get-EventLog -LogName Security |
    select EventID, TimeGenerated, Source, Message | sort TimeGenerated -Descending |
    fl > $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs\EventLog\security.log
    8. Copy all of the code below at once, right click into console to paste and press enter
    Code:
    Compress-Archive -Force -Path $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs -DestinationPath $env:SystemDrive\PSLogs.zip
    9. This will create folder named "PSLogs" and zip file named "PSLogs.zip" in your C:\ root drive
    10. Attach "PSLogs" zip file to your new reply
    11. Feel free to delete "PSLogs" folder and zip file when done

    I found out kinda what's happening, everytime I click certain programs stop responding for a split second, resulting in them being minimized, it happens with Blender, Paint.NET, and Minecraft

    Sorry for taking so long, unfortunately there is not much within logs to help identify a problem.

    But what is this "FrontendFixII" ?
    Did problem appear to happen only after you installed this plugin?
    Or do you experience this issue since windows was installed?

    I'm not sure when this problem started, I had the flickering windows explorer problem since I installed Windows, but applications not responding for a second might be new I didn't notice it until I ran Blender and later Minecraft, FrontendFixII was a mod for GTA2, but I couldn't get GTA2 working on that PC for some reason, I thought I deleted it so idk why it's still on the PC

    - - - Updated - - -

    Okay so now the random not responding thing is happening even when I don't click

    - - - Updated - - -

    I found one post on the entire internet about the same issue I'm having: Reddit - Dive into anything

    Unfortunately Reddit is having some sorta site wide protest so I can't see the post to know if any solutions where even provided

    Personally, I'd go to the computer / graphics card maker & re-install the graphics driver even if it was the same version as the current one.
    This would resolve any graphics driver corruption that was causing these on-screen glitches.

    I ought to suggest that you first try Safe mode and a different user account before making that suggestion.
    If another user account has the problem but Safe mode does not then that points more decisively towards the graphics driver.

    It doesn't seem to be a visual issue, programs will say 'not responding' for a split second randomly and it gets even worse when I click

    These errors are not exact, only one of them can be true so it's impossible to say exactly.
    It could be that your hard drive or memory sticks are not properly seated or there is hardware issue with those.
    It could also be driver problem.

    I would suggest you to run memory test to rule out issues with memory:
    MemTest86+ - Test RAM

    And to test disk and filesystem:
    Run SFC Command in Windows 10

    followed by:
    Code:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    And finally check disk itself is properly connected.
