TE stick SFV issue

Been using joytokey and xboxce to play SFV online on PC and it seems like
every other game the stick stops working. I have to switch windows to my
desktop and back to SFV. I’m usually dead in the time it takes for that
process to happen.

I’m thinking about buying a new stick, kinda tired of dealing with the issue.
Anyone have a clue what could be happening? I do notice sometimes a popup
ad from my virus protection or firewall will be present when this happens but other
times nothing is present on my desktop when the stick just freezes.
