If I remember right, I finally fixed the issue by setting something om Linux without having to do anything with Windows at all. The other solution is just use two computers.If I found a way to stop it from happening, then it can't require much techie chops on the Linux side of things On the Windows side I remember making some registry modifications according to suggestions I found on the Internet. I'm a bit annoyed with myself for not noting down the solution, but given that I tried several things it may have been a combination of those things that did the trick.
@tinpanally You can get refurbished computers for cheap and if you look around you can get decent specs as well. Use that for leaning Linux.
