Well, I did updates and ran scans for all spyware and what not. The problem is still persisting :(

Didn't work :(

I found this and am trying it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313176

I did mess around with my mic/voice settings recently after trying to play Borderlands with my friends and having audio/mic issues. In attempting to turn it off I may have inadvertantly turned something on. I will let you guys know if this works.

I tried this and so far seems to have worked.... Only played for an hour though but NWN did not auto minimize once during that hour... Further testing tomorrow night as I have to get to bed now. Will let you all know how it goes ;)

I threatened to go Elvis on the machine last night.  For some reason the problem stopped.   :lol:

This is very annoying. Happened when I finally decided to update.
Though it only happens with full-screen programs that are volatile to tabbing out or windowing. I don't even have a CPU to meet common standards, so pretty much everything that loses focus will crash because it simply takes too long for it to pull back up.

The game still minimizes on me so the fix above did not work [sighs]

apparently, this is a bug with AVG 9.0...which I also just downloaded recently. They have a hotfix here:

I'm going to try this out and let you know if it works.
