Full screen Games minimizing

hello

i have exactly the same problem as this topic:
Full screen Games minimizing without any reason.

but nothing works, i dont know how to find the "bad" program that makes my fullscreen games minimize after 10/20 minutes or so.

anyway, even if there is a program that triggers this, windows 7 should not let this minimize problem.
Or there is maybe an option in windows 7 that doesn't let it and i don't know if it exists.
is there such an option?

What anti-virus do you have? This usually happens when a program is trying to update in the background

yes but even if there is a program that wants to update, windows 7 should not minimize the fullscreen-game.
or it should let us choose between the minimization or not.
At any rate the minimization is useless since i don't even receive any tooltip that informs me on the responsible program.

do you realize if i allow all my programs to check and autoupdate? (what could be the case)
does it mean i have either to all stop them or it would be impossible to play peacefully?

Have you opened msconfig and disabled any non microsoft services and all startup programs?

i have already found the responsible program it was comodo dragon that wanted to update.
i have disabled it and the games don't minimized anymore.

but it is not a "clean" solution to disable autoupdate for all the programs of my computer.
the problem has to be fix in windows 7. it should not minimize the games when a program try to update.
