All my games(steam) are minimizing on start! And continue to minimize. (HELP!)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, the ONLY thing I have recently done on my computer was installed the realtek drivers and my games are auto minimizing on start and keep doing so. SO I thought I should uninstall them, didnt work....

SO I also had a steam update which I am wondering if it could be the cause... Not sure.

I disabled steam community and borderlands 2 and left 4 dead 2 and everything are working, but gta4 isn't. I am really not sure what is happening...
If I enable community and launch BL2 it auto minimizes, disable community, and it works.... I don't know what the heck is happening.
Here are my running processes

So, I just started having this problem last week. Everything, even non-steam games start minimized. With a few games (like L4D2) I can maximize them after launch and play normally, but games like Bioshock Infinite just repeatedly minimize themselves...

I tried reinstalling steam, updating my Nvidia drivers, playing with and without afterburner enabled. Nothing's worked so far. headscratch.gif
