Default [Windows] Vista x64 SP2 Alt Tab

I recently installed service pack 2 for Windows x64 bit and ever since it has been giving me this issue.

Basically what happens is, I load up PR. I then alt-tab to do whatever and when I try to go back in it won't come up. It sort of flashes like its gonna come back and then minimizes again. Eventually after clicking on it a bunch of times it sticks, but then repeats if I alt-tab again. When I actually get in-game (as in server loaded, running around in the field) it does not happen.

I've had the same issue on other games (MW2, GTA4 etc).

Any ideas?

The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end... "

I have not experienced your particular problem myself.
But I suspect that background task or process keeps catching the focus.

Try with terminating unneeded processes.

Also it is possible that you should wait a bit longer after the first click to have the game fully (re)load/initialize.

Got a PROBLEM? Check this: PR:BF2 Installation Guide

Nah its not that, tried leaving it for 5 minutes and nothing happens (although BF2 has always just come straight up anyway).

Will try getting rid of background tasks though, cheers.
