    I am having sort of an issue here. Whenever I load up a full screen application, it is minimized to the tray... and immediately after I bring it back up, its minimized again. I ran a dxdiag video test, and the tests are canceled due to a "key press". In light of this, I unplugged all input devices and hooked up a standard ps2 keyboard as the only input device, and there is still an issue... I have also done numerous anti-virus checks hoping that was the problem, but none were found. I currently use AVG free.

    Other than that, im not sure what is causing this problem, but it is rather annoying since it disables me from playing any game or running any full windows application.

    Check if it starts iexplore.exe every time it does that, I've seen that happen recently. Some spyware I believe it was. If so, rename iexplore.exe and see if that fixes it.
