My computer does this weird thing where if for example I;m playing a game the game window just minimizes for no apparent reason. It doesn't just do it once either it just keeps going and going on like that and it's really annoying when you're trying to a game like AOE. I've tried every spyware elimantor and anit-virus thing and nothing is helping. Please Help!
the anti-virus program or spyware program (or some other scheduled task) may suddenly become active, bringing itself to the front (minimizing your game) such as when it updates, or starts automatically scanning... This can also be caused by various messaging programs, and other programs updating...
However, there is still a possibility of malware/viruses etc...
If you could tell me what your tray icons are it would be helpful...
It can also be your firewall. Mine is always minimizing my games.
Or maybe you're using the ALT - TAB combination?
I think it's a windoze thing. You could be hitting alt-tab.
Its very hard to accidentally hit alt-tab during gameplay
check the box for advanced text services to off may also help
it could be that a new window is opening in fron of your game e.g. ur firewall is asking for some sort of permisions
It happened to my old computer. The screen got minimized when I sometimes played games. You can hit Alt+Tab too quickly and as I was playing a game of cricket, Alt was required for the bat and Tab for the direction!
