Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I would check to make sure you have the latest video drivers installed on the machine. Also if you are going to be switching between windows a lot try to run the game in "window mode" you might lose a bit of size but you can change it to take up most of the screen space.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Some games just don't like being "Alt-Tabbed" out of
Try to run it in Windowed mode like DarkXeno suggested if you can't live without fb for some time
or open the task manager, click the game and then click Switch To
That sometimes helps if you can't get back in the normal way
