    And by out of focus I mean I need to select the box where I'm typing in so I can continue typing.

    This issue started yesterday
    Only installed GeDoSaTo and Fistful of Frags.
    I'm not running any programs in the background that I haven't ran before the problem occured
    Not a keyboard of mouse issue.

    :V help this is really annoying.

    I've seen this issue in the past caused by adware (pop up ads that often get killed straight away by Adblock) and by keyloggers. I'd suggest running a virus/malware scan to rule out the latter possibility.

    Also, have a look in your browser plugins/extensions for anything you don't recognise. After that, have a look at the windows program uninstall menu for the same. These steps can help clean the system registry as well as rule out some possibilities.

    You mention GeDoSaTo... this is still a work-in-progress tool, so it might carry issues with it.

    Where are you trying to type at, exactly? In-game chat? Steam overlay? Alt-tabbed during gameplay? Your mentioning of GeDoSaTo makes me think your issue involves a game running and typing.

    Did a malwarebyte scan, nothing showed up. Any other programs I should scan with?

    This affects everything. So browsers, IM programs, wordpad. Anything that I can type on.

    Guess I'll do a restore point load which I should have done in the first place.
