Windows 7: how can I monitor window focus grabs

how can I monitor window focus grabs

I recently began having a difficulty with a game (Skyrim) when I run it in full screen mode. What is happening is that the game minimizes to the task bar. I've searched through the various forums on this board and see that others have had same problem from time to time, but could find no answer that worked for me.

I am certain that some process is grabbing the window focus and thus causing the full screen game to minimize. I just don't know what that is.

I found a program called process monitor, but the output from it is too large to scan easily.

Does anyone know how to monitor and log only those processes that try to grab the screen focus? That might help me to figure out what is causing the problem on my computer.
