Red face Random Shutdown

I have steam on my computer and i love to play cs and dod a lot. As most of you i assume know, the game takes up the whole screen which can be frustrating. When i get an instant message or i need to minimize the screen for another reason, i press the windows key and the game minimizes to the taskbar. But recently when i use the windows key as soon as i hit it my computer restarts. Any input?

i would just stop using windows key, and switch to alt+tab. it works just as good. i dont know how to actually change the function of that button though.

you can set in to not full screen. thats what i have mine set to so when i'm downloading new maps i can just hit the minimaze button.

what your prob is not enough memory. it might have bin enough before but now there might be some spy/adware running in the background now.
