Games minimize themselves while playing

I've had my computer since summer but a problem that recently started occurring is my games will minimize out of full screen while I'm playing them. It only happens once or twice soon after I've turned my computer on and then it seems to stop. Any reasons this could be happening? I thought it might have something to do with AMD Vision Engine Control because once I saw the icon for that flash for a brief second on the task bar as my game minimized.

It's not a big issue, as I said it stops after once or twice, but if there's an easy fix I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Could be notifications or something else popping up. When I got a new wireless router, every night around 7:30 it would minimize my game and tell me there were no updates for it. I just turned the notifications off.

I have found that removing a lot of the backgroup apps will help with this. If not I would also try removing some start-up items you don't neet. Normally when games minimize to desktop another application is trying to get your attention.

Turn off any notifications you do not need to see.
