    I have a problem that when i try to launch a game it turns to full screen and then minimizing to my desktop and if i try to maximize the game it goes to full screen for 2 second and then minimizing agin. its really annoying and sometimes i have to maximize it 10-20 times for it to stay in maximized. Btw my computer is a laptop acer and im running windows vista.

    It's probably your Firewall. Go look into Windows Firewall or an installed firewall program and see if your game is on a blocked list or something.
