Outlook 2007 Keeps loosing focus :(
Hi Guys,

I have installed Office 2007 Ultimate onto Windows Vista Ultimate and
everything is great apart from one VERY annoying anomaly. When I start
Outlook it keeps switching focus to something else in the background and
then back again. It does it about every 5 seconds and when I start another
program it does that same thing, the start button does it as well but when I
close outlook, everything seems to come back to normal.

I have looked at the task manager and it seems to be something to do with
"dwn.exe" can anyone please advise me on a solution to this. I am starting
here because I dont want to ring India for tech support. (nothing against
that accept I cant understand them most the time )

Regards

Dave

Dave,
Click the Windows Start button, then open the Control Panel. On the
left-hand side of the Control Panel, click on Classic View. Open User
Accounts and click on Turn User Account Control(UAC) on or off. In the
window that opens, uncheck the box to turn UAC off and click OK. You'll be
prompted to restart your computer, do so. After reboot, you may get a
warning but you can disable it.

What it does is change the system security level to be on par with Windows
XP, that's about it.

That box may be ask for permission to continue see if Turing it off will
help.
