Default Games keep minimizing

I just got a new computer with Radeon 9700 graphics card and am having a strange problem running some games.

When I start certain games the game will minimize on the opening screen and bring me back to the desktop, if I switch back to the game it will keep doing the samething. The only way I can keep the game from minimizing and playing it is if I keep clicking the mouse button when I switch back to it.

One game maker suggested adding -opengl in the target area of the shortcut for the game. For some of the games with this problem it fixed the problem when the game starts, but if I switch to another program, like to check my mail or something, then switch back to the game I still have the same problem where I have to keep clicking the mouse button to keep the game open.

Well, that was just a minor problem at first but now with some other games after the game minimizes and I try keeping it open by clicking the mouse button it will still minimize the game again and again, I have to go through this like 10 times before I can finally keep the game open and play it. It's getting very annoying and frustrating.

For some games there is no problem at all, and no programs that I've tried running have had this problem yet either, and even the games that have this problem when I can finally play it it runs just fine and the graphics are great and everything.

I have the latest drivers for everything.

Any help/advice would be appreciated, thank you.
