  1. Full screen games being closed at random

    This has been going on for MONTHS.When I am in a game, it will minimize at pure random and the following have been programs to be opened:

    -File Explorer-Notifications-Microsoft's doodle program-Control Panel-Windows search

    As of now, I have ran sfc/ scannow and it did detect corrupted files. The problem is that it got WORSE after I did that. It would usually just do windows search and now its doing all kinds of other stuff. I am running a full threat scan atm. Playing R6 Siege and my performance was dipping at a specfic point which is- you guessed it- when it started minimizingNotifications have been disabled, along with game mode and focus assist.Please give me other recommendations, this is getting out of hand.

    Update #1; No threats were found. Im attempting to play the game without touching any shift or ctrl buttons. Starting to think the shortcut keys are glitched out. May help disabling them (i never used them ever)
