Windows 7: Alt tabbing from full screen games causing problem

Alt tabbing from full screen games causing problem

Whenever I alt tab out of a game like CSS, bioshock, or crysis the game goes from full screen to windowed, and it sucks! Cuz it's not working properly like that either. When that happens, and I start walking around and moving the mouse, if I move the mouse too far and it goes out of the game's screen, I'm able to click outside of the game and it interrupts w/e I was doing in the game. The cursor is supposed to be fixed in the middle of those shooting games, but when I alt tab and the game gets windowed, it doesn't, although it appears to be until I end up moving the mouse too far and clicking...anyone else having this problem?
