Default why will bf2 minimise

whe I just tried to start bf2, it loaded, said "ea gam", and then minimized, and stopped loading. If I try to restore the window, it minimizes again, and it keeps goig like that. I have had this problem before, and It is fixed by a reinstall, but I don't want to have to reinstall bf2 every other day. what gives?

it coudl be another program is set to stay on top..and bf2 is minimizing because the other program is doing that mayb.e..or an error window popping up?

go Ctrl Alt Delete...then go to processes....and terminate everything except explorer.exe....then try the game~!

r u retarded, closing evrything but explorer.exe will mess ur comp up. svchosts and that stuff, u need it. LSASS is also needed. You should have at lest 15 processes in that tab.
