Prevent applications from stealing window focus

One ‘feature’ of XP is the ability of one application to steal the focus from another. This is the reason why your chat window looses focus when someone else buzzes you on Yahoo! messenger.

    It didnt work for me. In my office I have a computer with a phone application installed. It has 2 monitors, with the phone application on one and other applications like excel on the other. When a call come in, if the user is using the spread sheet the application looses focus and the focus goes to the other monitor where the phone application is installed. Any solution for this?
