    Default Kicking to windows

    Ok, would anyone have an idea why when i play some games, it automatically occasionally gets kicked over to windows, like i alt/tabbed out of the game? Its happening sporadically on some games.

    No viruses or spyware detected, its not a keyboard thing where im hitting X combination of buttons. Just a random kick to windows. I can always just click on the bar to get back to the game, its just a weird thing that recently started happening.

    You are just being a tard... If that ever happens to me my anti-virus updates and it pops up a little window to let me know. Sounds like something running in the background is trying to do something. Check your processes to make sure nothing nebulous is running.

    I would suggest trying another keyboard/mouse and see if the problem goes away. It is an easy way to rule out a major part of the computing environment.

    I found a registry hack to disable the caps lock key a while back. Maybe there's one to disable that goofy 'Windows' key.
    Siggy.

    Maybe you're hitting the Windows key? I do that alot as I usually sprint with the left alt key, right next to it.

    If that is the case, then a lot of gaming keyboards nowadays come with a "windows key" disable switch, like my G11.

    Here is a knowledge base article from Microsoft with instructions to disable the Windows Key on the keyboard.

    Ditto. It happens to me when I get some sort of notification.
