Hi, Enquiring for a friend who uses Windows XP. When he clicks on a web page his PC sometimes just goes back to the Desktop. Doesn't happen all the time. Any advice welcome. Thanks

Where is he clicking when this happens? (a link in his browser window, a link in his favourites/bookmarks, a link in an email, or where..?)

Do you mean his browser minimizes to the Taskbar?

More details are needed please.

Thanks for reply lotvic.Have spoken to my friend who says that when he clicks on a link in his browser window he sometimes gets taken back to the desktop. Apparently this sometimes happens when he is doing nothing more than looking at a web page and not touching the mouse or keyboard. Very odd! Any ideas?

Could just be dirty keyboard, dust and debris between the keys. Turn keyboard upside down and tap/shake out debris.

Or could be a bug in an Active X http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?topic=339811.0
