Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I am not real sure I understand your question, but I will take a shot at it. I understand you have minimized the game program. It should be visible in the system tray at the bottom of your screen. I am not aware of any pop up associated with this. Please clarify.

Are you sure it's minimizing or is it crashing completley? You could be getting a CTD and that could be an issue with the game itself.

Does it only happen while gaming? What OS are you using? If Win98, shut down all unneccesary things running in the background that you don't need. Also, update your video driver. I have found that most of all my gaming problems have been due to outdated video drivers. Also, it could be not enough ram installed, but I would expect an error message to pop up if that was the case. If you do have win98, and by shutting down progams running in the background cures it, you will have to shut them down one at a time to find out which one is causing the problem.

just my stab at the problem. :tazz:

CTD - Crash To Desktop... Basically, if you're CTD'ing, you have to start the game again, not just alt tab it back up. Is that what's happening?

I do no think it is CTDing because i just hit the tab and it brings it back up...but it is still very annoying and when i am running AIM there is a pop up... and sometimes there isnt it is very tricky to figure out.
