Random Minimizing While in Full Screen in FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

So there I am, flying along in FSX, minding my own business, when  all of a sudden FS minimizes and I'm staring at my desk top.  This normally happens several times during a session and not just in FS either but any program that I run while in Full Screen.  It's driving me crazy!  Especially when it happens while I'm on short final!

 

Has this happened to anyone else?  Any ideas?

 

Thanks,


Bill Alderson

Using Google it seems it's happened to lots of people, Bill.    These four fixes came up, but there are probably a lot more.

 

1). These three files - Liveupd.exe, Liveupd.dat and Runliveupd.exe  - remove them.

 

2). wermgr.exe  This checks for solutions to problems. Turn it off

 

3). KB977074 - remove it.

 

4). Aero "Shake"   - turn it off.

 

I hope one of these is the solution.... but maybe won't be, either!

 

All the Best,

 

pj

Hi Paul,

 

No joy as far as the files you mentioned are concerned.  Did a search and I don't seem to have any of those files.   I also tried something involving Regedit and that didn't seem to work either; still minimizes.

 

Any other ideas?

 

Thanks for all your help thus far.

An uipdate: I looked in services and  did find liveupdate.exe and disabled it.   We'll see if it works.
