Why does my screen view jumps to a different screen? Such as if I'm typing a message in Outlook, the screen jumps to the Internet.

Sometimes misbehaving Windows programs force themselves to be the focus, but you might also be accidentally hitting the control or alt key when you are typing.

Thanks Phil - however, I do not accidentally hit the control or alt key - it just happens without doing anything. I could be typing an email and the screen goes to an Explorer internet screen and if I go back, sometimes, it goes back again.

It may be an IE addon behaving badly. You can try disabling addons one at a time until you find the culprit. It could also be malware trying to take control of your browser. Run a scan with MBAM or Spybot and see what it turns up.

How do I disable any addons? If I have malware on my computer, which Norton doesn't find, which program is better - MBAM or Spybot - and easiest to use? Thanks.

In IE8, it's under tools/manage addons.

Thanks - I found it. Disabled GEPluginCoClass Object (thru Google) - maybe that will make a difference.
