Windows losing focus


Recommended Posts

Since a few days all of my open programms start to lose there focus for some reason. Sometimes nothing appears but 99 of the 100 times a message appears with some sort of script error. Ive noticed that the error starts every time with http://error.wlxs.com.....slash....dot.....numbers.


Ive allready googled the link and it appears to be Windows Live. It brings me to my own Hotmail account. But I have no clue why I keep getting that error message. When I get it... because im not getting it atm. Right.... always when you dont need it, its there, but when you dont need it, it doest appear!! Crap :P

I haven't heard of that one before, that server is owned by Microsoft though so I don't think it is a virus.

When does this happen?



Update: From what I could find this error has something to do with Hotmail. I'd try uninstalling Windows Live Essentials and anything else that has the ability to login to Hotmail.

Then track when/if it still does it.

Its happening since a few days. Not exactly when it started and how it started though. Ill try to uninstall Live Essentials and see what happens then. THis evening the error came by for a few times, but its quit since then, since ive opened hotmail. So lets see what happens if i uninstall Essentials. Ill keep you posted.

FFS... Problem not solved. I keep getting that stupid pop-up. And when that popup doesnt appear I still keep hearing that "something is being clicked" sound. Its driving me crazy because the pop-up causes windows to lose focus. And thats realy f*cked up when im gaming. In the heat of a battle in Battlefield standing still sucks.

Just talked to my friend. No wonder it looked familiar, I think this is the result of malware.

Check this report: http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx ... 07086cae0e


In summary it's a stealth infection, similar to a rootkit.

Once it is on your system it pulls specified code from multiple "safe" sites in order to look normal. Sometimes a pop-up will appear, but because the URL is safe most people don't know it. This is also relatively new I think.

Here are some of the URL's it pulls data from:



If I'm correct, getting rid of it isn't going to be fun.

There are some viruses that are rare and new enough that they haven't been added to the virus definitions of antivirus software.


This is a weird one for sure, I'm still not sure it's a virus but I can't think of anything else that would be causing this.
