    Program moves to background automatically


    Hey, so I have had this problem from the start. It's a new computer, no upgrades. When I am in a program, Windows will automatically move that program to the background.
    It happens in different ways;
    --it's like an automatic alt-tab program switch
    --program is minimized so desktop comes up or
    --the program stays up but control is lost (essentially the program is moved to the background).
    It is not me, I will be typing and poof, I'm typing in another program or I get dings meaning you can't do that. It's not a program I'm using, it happens with every program. Firefox, mail, games (especially annoying) and even the calculator. Any ideas?

    ps oh and it's seems random. It doesn't happen at a certain time of day or after a prolonged period of use. Sometimes its multiple times an hour and sometimes it won't happen that day.

    Win+DownArrowKey is a key stroke shortcut to Minimize to the taskbar...
    Any chance your accidentally hitting this key combo (for like Ctl+Downkey is keycombo shortcut for "End")
