    When I follow this recommended procedure nothing happens. I restart my
    computer after changing the value to 00030d40 but the values do not change.
    Am I missing a step?

    Prevent other Applications from Stealing Focus
    To prevent applications from stealing the focus from the window you
    are working

    1.. Start Regedit
    2.. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop
    3.. Edit the key ForegroundLockTimeout
    4.. Give it a value of 00030d40

    Download and install TweakUI. It has a checkbox for this.
