Windows 7: Full Screen exits for no apparent reason

05 Dec 2009   #11


Glad to help guys!
Haven't had much time to test but yesterday I tried disabling everything AVG I could find in msconfig and I could watch a 2 hour movie without problem. Upon enabling AVG again the problem reappeared.

So I guess it's rollback to AVG 8.5 or try another antivirus app.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Not avg

I'm new here to this site and was reading about the same problems I'm having about full screen exiting on it's own. I saw that u all are turning off the AVG to see if that's the problem, well, I dont think it is because I am running a Norton 360 and on my other computer, i'm running Avast anit-virus and it IS still doing it to me. I dont think it's our anit-virus at all, there is some kind of problems going on in our computers and to me, i have a feeling it has something to do with the updates we get now and then. Just to let u all know that it's not AVG, cuz i'm running two other virus protection on two different computer and i'm still having that problems.

Since this is the first result on Google for this problem, one solution is:

Go to Options->Playback and uncheck "Exit fullscreen at the end of playback"

I am surprised nobody has suggesting running Malwarebytes! Try it - Also get rid of AVG and all the others. Download and install Microsoft Essentials Security.

You should have started a new thread really but why do you want to turn AVG off? What problem are you having?

You seem to have posted this problem on more than one thread, yet another old one. This is against Forum Rules so I shall bow out and leave this to others!
