Windows Minimize Event (not CTD)

Recommended Posts

Anyone have this problem?  I will be flying along and I get a sudden windows minimize event.  FSX is NOT crashing because I recover by bringing up the task manager and select "switch to FSX" and all is well again. I run windows 7 and auto update is turned off.  Whats really interesting is I have another PC running games in windows XP and I get this event.  Maybe my router? Maybe my internet provider? Maybe magnetic waves?

 

Thanks for any help!

I had this exact same issue and traced it to Citrix Receiver running in the task bar. Once I closed it and stopped the associated service, I was able to fly for hours on end without the screen minimizing. A co-worker who is also an avid simmer had the same issue and when he closed Citrix he was able to fly without any issues as well.

 

Give that a shot and see and I hope it helps!

Sorry, I don't have Citrix  Receiver installed. But I will check for other stuff that may be starting up.  Thanks for replying!
