  1. Games randomly minimizing


    Recently, over the past week, games randomly minimize to desktop. I added a custom resolution and think it may be causing issues somehow, even though it should only effect the games that use that resolution. I have gamemode turned off, and im not sure what to do.

    Any advice would be great. Would restoring to a previous version be harmful or helpful? how far back should I go?

  2. Games minimizing and apps closing randomly.

    Since my last update, approx. 19 March 2018, my games keep minimizing and some applications close randomly.

    Please advise.

  3. Games minimizing randomly

    This is a problem due to an application named "ipconfig.exe" which pops up for less than a second and minimizes game, it appears after a scheduled time to reset the public IP.

    This problem generally arises due to use of some obsolete third-party application software to hide the public IP address. Possible solutions :

    • Uninstalling that software can be a fix
    • Full reset
