    Its completely random, i can play for 10 minutes sometimes and 5 seconds others. but the one thing that is constant is that nothing comes up after it minimizes. I recently have been alt-tabbing to see what is running and every time a clear box is there and when i highlight it in alt-tab it says "registry monitor". ive used ccleaner and fixed all my reg errors and its still doing it. I once read about a malware that does it called "altjabber" but i couldnt find it in my registry at all. (i used the find utility in regedit).
    i just recently started having this problem after I restored my computer to a previous point in safemode.
    please help?

    Are you using any Antivirus, Malware, or Firewall products? The Registry Monitor component sounds like it may be minimizing the application while processing privaledges for programs to access the registry, you should try to disable it.
