Full screen Games minimizing without any reason.

My Full-screen games are minimizing without any reason also Google Chrome (or any other program) is being deselected for no reason. Please help me and tell me what is the problem?

If you have a customisable mouse it could be that. Check the settings for it.

No dude, I think there is some software opening and closing automatically. But I used Norton Internet Security 2011 for a Full System scan and there was no viruses. Used Malware bytes Anti-Malware and it found only 3 viruses, deleted them and it is still deselecting windows and minimizing full-screen games. I think there is some kind of software which automatically opens and then closes... Please Help. It happened to over one million people on the Internet. Just search it on Google, I tried every thing to fix it but still deselecting...

Update: I downloaded BitDefender Total Security 2012 Evaluation and scanned Full-System but no infections. Please help...

Update 2: I found what is wrong, I just opened Task Manager and found that the file named: "wermgr.exe" (Windows Problem Reporting) It just opens and closes over and over again. So, I pressed the start button and searched for "Choose how to report problems" and then I clicked it and then I clicked "Never check for solutions", Which fixed everything and now I can do what ever I like without This shit bugging me". Thanks for anyone who helped me here. SevenForums for LiFE.

Hello Guys. I have finaly got my problem fixed and is going for a month now without minimizing.

After reading tons of stupid and/or dumb answers from people that either says: "You touch the Windows buttom" or actualy now the answer but wont tell because they have a looser life i found out the problem.

The reason is because of an update program that acutaly is made with the best intetion to keep your internet updated but easily get corrupted by virus etc. It is called liveupd.exe . It is also that thing you can see in the taskmanager for like a second then it disapires again.

What you do is that you find out where you internet program is installed. Find the folder called "Updatedogg" , go in their and remove the 3 files called. Liveupd.exe, Liveupd.dat and Runliveupd.exe . The problem is gone. The 3 files may be located another place but it is thoes 3 files that makes the mess.

PS Sry for spelling errors
