There could be a number of issues at hand here. The shortest way is to do the following START RUN and type eventvwr.(directly after it happens again) This will open a screen where you can choose from 3 options (Application System and Security) Please check there for white crosses in red dots , select them them and post the contents here.

I tried the event viewer, and nothing came up after it happen. I found some of the markers you were talking about but those were a couple of days old

It appears that some program is stealing the focus from your game. Since it doesn't generate an error in Event Viewer it's likely functioning correctly.

Try opening Task Manager while you're in the game. Then put it in the bottom of your screen (so that you can see the running programs just barely). Then, when it happens, a quick glance at the task manager may give you it's name.

If that doesn't work, try it with the Processes tab in Task Manager also.
