View Full Version : A minor but strange problem

12-18-2006, 07:28 AM
Hi everyone, this is my first post so forgive me if it's in the wrong spot;

I've been having a problem with the games I play minimizing without notice or explanation of any kind. At first I thought it was isolated to one game, but it seems that it's not the case and is affecting any game that's open for a fairly long time. I'm suspecting the cause of this is the firewall I have installed (ZoneAlarm Pro) but haven't found anything within the settings that can explain what's going on. I've also tried the "Prevent Applications from Stealing Focus" option in tweakUI but it has not helped.

I'm not sure what info would help with this, but I'm willing to provide anything you guys think would help.

The basics:
2x 7800GTX in SLI w/ latest Nvidia drivers

Asus P5N-SLI NForce 570 (I know they did some odd stuff with the networking on it, so I figure it might be related)

Windows XP Pro - all recent updates except for a networking driver which has caused a lot of freezes for me.

not sure what outside of those items would be useful.
