Default Fullscreen games being minimised randomly

I've been having this problem for a few days now and Google isn't providing the answers I'm looking for in particular... or I'm just not looking hard enough.

Whenever I play fullscreen games, the game will minimise randomly, taking me back to Firefox or whatever window I had open before going into the game. It doesn't do it a LOT but sometimes it picks the worst times to do it... from what I could find out from my Google searches, people were having it and saw AVG was the cause and a lot of people who had it weren't even using AVG. People who did were using AVG 9 and this was because the forums for these problems were posted in back in 2009...

So this isn't helping me much... I want to know why this is happening. Can anyone shed some light on this situation?

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and I'm using AVG Free Edition 2012. I was going to mention that X-Trap is used by one of my games, however it has happened on a game that doesn't use any anti-hack software, so it's bound to have nothing to do with X-Trap.

It depends what programs you have running. Some programs will force focus on themselves (horrible horrible programming practice). This of course causes your games to minimize. You may want to check through all the things you have running and see which ones have pop ups for example that force focus.

An easier solution is borderless window mode.

Hm, that just seems weird though. It wasn't happening before but only recently. I always had the same things open like I usually do, which is MSN, AVG, Firefox and sometimes Skype. I only have Steam open for 1 game too. Just confuses me why it would suddenly start doing this. It's not a big deal in some games, but others it can be a complete pain and mess me up completely. The one game I play often out of all 3 of the games I currently play doesn't even have a window option, which is why I'm hoping to find a solution somehow.

If MSN disconnects, it pops up causing minimization. That I know for sure. For firefox, if you use RSS it will also minimize stuff when you get a notification.
