    This has been a problem basically since I got the i5 2 months ago.
    There are two problems really...not sure if they are connected.

    1) Trying to touch the keyboard or the windows key does nothing
    If I keep touching it 1o or 15 times it will finally work
    Mouse seems to work
    2) At times...seems like with Desktop IE mostly...if I try to select another program from the taskbar (even with the mouse) it won't bring the selected program to the front.

    I've tried the regedit 200000 fix. it works for a bit, then it quits working.

    Anybody else?

    @sudermatt,

    I think you need to do a Refresh from PC Settings, Update and Restore. You seem to have some processes improperly competing for attention.

    Thanks for your reply.

    What kind of data will I lose?

    Your own files should remain, and only the OS and regisry should be replaced.
