Windows 7: Assassin's Creed II - Randomly Minimizing/Maximizing

Assassin's Creed II - Randomly Minimizing/Maximizing

I bought Assassin's Creed II from Steam yesterday (got it on sale ), but am having an issue where it randomly minimizes and then immediately maximizes back again.
It does this about once a minute or more, but seems to be completely random. Sometimes I can play for 5 minutes before it starts. It happens even if I'm not using any controls as well.
It makes the game essentially unplayable... Most reviews on AC II seem to be great, so I really hope I'll be able to get this fixed.

I've read through a bunch of forum posts from other people having similar issues and have tried all the basic "fixes" such as disabling anti-virus, running in compatibility mode, disabling visual effects, scanning for viruses, disabling unneeded startup items, etc. I keep my PC pretty clean so running scans, checking for unnecessary startup items and all that is done on a regular basis.

None of my other games do this, not sure why AC II would be any different.
I believe my system specs are already in my profile, but I'll be happy to provide any other info that would help resolve this issue.
