    for example, i played NFS: MW and after some time the game minimizes, ten i enlarged it again and after some time it minimized again, but aftet some time again, it closed the whole program !!!! dammit, and i was on a 500,000 bounty worth pursuit arghhh, what can be the problem ? it happened in another games as well...

    the programs that are running:

    AC97 Sound Manager
    BitDefender

    there were some more as well, but i turned them off in order to isolate the problem.... i also turned Bit Defender off, but seems like it didnt turn off completely cause when i pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete i saw bdnagemt.exe, bdss.exe and bdswitch.exe are still running.. only bdmcon turned down which probably means BitDefenderManageriCON 0_o

    i seem to remember having that problem with certain video driver versions and having the screensaver on, try disabling the windows screensaver altogether and see what happens.

    I had similar problems with McAfee Antivirus. I had to stop it's service before playing any game otherwise it use to minimise them at regular intervals.
