Hi all,

I am hoping that some one can please assist as I am new to Windows 7 and also to this site!!!

Since having Windows 7, I was playing games that I loaded onto the hard drive (not online) and all was working with no issues
until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden my games are minimising to the desktop mid game.
My antivirus is switched off whilst in gaming mode and nothing seems to be scheduled at that time nor does anything appear in the task manager.
This is extremely frustrating and making gameplay very difficult.

Does anyone have an idea on what it is and whether there is a solution and maybe you have encountered this yourself at some point.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
This did not happen in Windows Vista and seems to be an undocumented feature of Windows 7 that is bugging me no end!!!

If it helps here are the specs of my laptop - its an Asus G73S series gaming machine with Direct x11 that with the following specs

Intel®Core i7-2630QM CPU @2.00Ghz
Installed memory Ram 8.00GB
Windows 7 640bit Operating System
Nvidia Geforce GTX46 1.5GB Cuda

Thanks so much
