Don't know if this is a bug or maybe I am doing something wrong but the game keeps minimizing on me at completely random times. Doesn't seem to happen at any specific area or when doing any certain action. Happens to my girlfriend as well.
Here too. Although it seems it does it every 15-20 minutes and it is irritating. Can't tell you how many times I've been traveling along on my broom and had to bring the game back up from the taskbar to find myself in a wall or in the middle of the street which invariably means a fight ensues. Would be great if someone had an idea on how to fix this.
If you are using AVG have have upgraded to 9.0, then that is your culpret. Apparently, it does not play nicely with full-screen games. Every 30 minutes, your full-screen game (or full-screen media player) loses focus and you get popped back into the Windows desktop with your game minimized.
It looks like AVG is aware of the problem, but until they patch it I suggest that those of you who haven't upgraded your verison of AVG yet not to install AVG v9.0.
