    My Mac has this weird disease that it returns to the first screen by itself after I've opened a couple of windows no mather what software or program I use.

    It has nothing to do with my keyboard or mouse, because this problem occurs even when I've pulled everything out of the USB socket.

    For example, when I start a movie with VLC Media player it starts over after 3 seconds and it goed to the start of the movie.

    Anybody who knows the solution, I just can't find anything about this issue.

    This sounds like a stuck software key - for example, Mac OS X thinks the left arrow is always down, even when the keyboard isn't plugged in. I've never seen this issue before, but one possible cause is a global keyboard shortcut defined in System Preferences that's set erroneously.
