Sounds like a keyboard problem or you may be hitting the windows key by accident during game play

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Make sure that the mouse pointer is not to the far right lower corner or you are activating the 'Show Desktop' every time the pointer is nudged a tiny bit and restores if it is nudged back away. Keep the mouse pointer nearly anywhere else, or deactivate the feature (right click on the small rectangle and uncheck the "Peek at Desktop").

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

How old is this game you're trying to play and which one is it specifically? Does it require any sort of compatibility mode?

Also, by chance are you accidentally hitting the Windows key on your keyboard?
