I am having issues when I am in Full Screen when watching videos on Firefox or using my emulator. When in full screen my computer will randomly minimize it or switch away from it. I always have to hit Alt+Tab to switch back to it. It's not closing it's just switching back to Firefox. I use JNes emulator and it minimizes the whole program and when i go back to the program the full screen is black(the emulator makes it go black;my issue is that I keep getting kicked out of full screen), It doesn't seem to do it when I watch movies on PotPlayer. I haven't tested it on other programs but I think If I solve the problem for Firefox it would fix it for the other programs.
I've notices that this small cmd prompt box keeps popping up every 20-30 seconds or so. I think it's what's causing the problem when I'm in Full Screen but I'm not sure. Also I don't know why that box pops up. It's up for a fraction of a second so i don't even know if it says anything on it.
I've done a virus scan, a malware scan, and I cleaned up my temporary folders. I even did a Disk Fragmentation and a Disk Clean Up just to see if that did anything. I rebooted my system to see if it was related to my media server program (PS3 Media Server 1.90.1). In the program I have to set up Windows Service to get it working (so i can watch my media off my computer on my TV;All Share doesn't work properly with my computer on my Samsung TV for some reason). I went through all my installed programs, I checked All Programs to see if anything was in there I didn't reconize. I'm starting to scan every folders to see if anything strange is popping up but I haven't seen anything. I have had this problem a few months ago but ussually a Reboot removed my problem completely and I couldn't figure out why that fixed it temporarily.
It's has finally come to the point where i needed to come to a forum and see if there is someone out there that can help me. I know this isn't a simple virus or malware problem but I am going to find out what is wrong with my PC.
Edit: I noticed that on Firefox it only seems to be specific flashplayers that are closing. I watch online streams and the command prompt window still popped up (made it larged so I could make sure it was a cmd prompt window and I made the background blue;easier to read in blue) but it didn't interupt or minimize full screen. It was just a regular stream with a simple grey media bar on the bottom. The other one is a Flowplayer program that the stream is using and the command prompt seems to switch it out of full screen. I wish the command prompt would stop popping up. It's actually getting annoying.
I'm using Windows Vista Home Basic.
Edit: I just discovered that Malwarebytes wasn't scanning for rootkits when I was scanning my computer so I checked the box in the settings and I am now doing another scan.
