Windows 7: games randomly minimise

games randomly minimise

this one isnt so important but it is iritating anyway, whenever i play a game in fullscreen the game just decides it dosent wunt to be up anymore and just minimises...iv checked everything that would possibly be giving off warnings and so on but all of them say either its in silent mod (it wont bring up warning and so on during game play) or just says the last time it put up a warning or anything was houres ago even know the game would minimise a second ago so i cant tell if its a program that is doing it or games just spaz out on my computer. XD

the only way i can counter this is by not having it on fullscreen but this is especilly annoying as i hate having to play with an annoying bar at the top of my screen being very distracting and when i need to tab out i can esily do so instead of having to usully quit what im doing so it stops the main focus on the game (i.e. i try to open other things but it just goes back to the game imedietly) although this happenes with like 2 games which I dont play anymore so i cant remember which ones they where but i know it can happen with new games hence why im including this.

sins this is such a small thing i may not respond very fast as i am trying to also deal with IObit (which is disabled) MF (mailware fighter) 's support to see if they can find the source of why it blue screens my computer. :\

Hi, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Seems like that something is causing your games to minimize. Also, you mentioned that you are not able to lookout what is causing the issue. You can get a small application "Game booster" from here Game booster. Run your game in windowed mode and run this app. It will let you know if something is running in background that is causing the games to minimize.

Keep us posted.

i already have that but dont use it as its mainly to focus all ,if not most, of the cpu to the game that is running which i dont need to do as well my computer can handle the games fine. also having to repetidly boost a game every time i wunt to play one is irritating as it takes a while to do so and probly wont help with this situation hence why i havent tryed it for the games that do randomly minimise.
