[ORIGIN] Games Tabbing Out/ Games randomly auto-launching

Problem

  • I’m playing an Origin game but it randomly tabs out, minimizes or goes to windowed mode
  • Origin coming to the front while playing a game.
  • While doing something else, another Origin game randomly starts up
  • Origin randomly starts itself, asking me to login.

Cause

Probably an issue with recognizing the licenses.

Solution

  1. Close Origin
  2. Stop the following processes through the task Manager: OriginWebHelperService.exe and OriginClientService.exe
  3. Delete all files in the following folders (These folders are hidden, you need to unhide them first)
    • C:\ProgramData\Electronic Arts\EA Services\License
    •  C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Electronic Arts\EA Services\License
  4. Restart Origin
