Windows 7: Full Screen Games minimise

Full Screen Games minimise

Some of the games I have been playing are automatically minimizing every 10 secs or so. It is really annoying and I cant seem to find the source of the problem.

The two games I have noticed it happening too are these:
The Sims 1
Plants Vs Zombies

Thanks in Advance,
Sam

Try uninstalling Update KB977074 if you have it installed (you can reapply the update later) - post back if the issue persists

It's that time of day again - will check back later
