Any suggestions to keep my games from minimizing every 10 minutes?

I had this issue a few months ago and I ran a virus scan, found something, deleted it, and it fixed the problem completely. Yesterday, it started doing it again. I've ran my scan twice and it's only found tracking cookies, which were deleted, but the problem still persists.

I only use my PC for gaming and occasionally looking up something gaming related on sites like Steam, Cheap Shark, Amazon, and Ebay and the only thing I download are patches.

I tried so many solutions last time by using youtube and web searches but none helped. I may have to start doing that again but I figured I'd check here first to look for some possible solutions.

Stop hitting your Windows key with your fat fingers.

Idea 3: Stop any automatic stuff, like scanning or updates.

My PC does this as well and never figured out why.

Hit windows key? nope
Stop all updates and running programs that could interfere? Never had any
Cycling wallpapers? Never has been turned on and never will be.

I would love to know this as much as you TC.

@SpazH3d

That seems to have worked. Disabled windows updates and virus software and it stopped minimizing. Not sure which one fixed it, I'm just happy it stopped.

It's definitely not disabling Windows Updates that fixed it. What antivirus software are you using?

I fail to see how that would affect anything. Never had a wallpaper change minimize the game on me.

Turn Aero off if you have it on.
