I have read several pages on games that keep minimizing. If I take my computer off the internet, or run in safe mode, all of my games work without minimizing. I have updated my drivers, computer and antivirus. Nothing shows up. Not sure what I am missing. Thanks.

By "minimize" do you mean that the game works but its in a window instead of full screen, or do you mean it goes all the way to the taskbar? Also, is this a game played in your web browser online, or is it installed on your computer?
I mean that it is minimizing to the task bar. These games are installed on Big Fish Games, which goes on my hard drive. I haven't always had this problem. Just in the past two months or so. I have no idea what I may have installed to get it to happen.
Don't have a clue then, unless you're "grabbing" one window and "shaking" it, which minimizes all other open windows. Vista is just generally a pain in the... and slower than ... I wouldn't even screw around trying to fix any vista issues, I just wipe the drives and put 7 on them and all the problems go away for the most part.
