OK I'm not sure if anyone else has this issue and it's definitely not WoT related as it happens with all games I play but does anyone have a solution for stopping my computer from automatically minimising my games? It's become an annoyance and it never happened to me until after I got Windows 7 64-bit.
System Specs:
Windows 7 64-bit
AMD Athlon™ II X3 450 Processor 3.20 GHz
8GB RAM (2x 4GB Corsair Sport RAM Sticks)
nVidia GeForce GT430 (Planned with be replaced by a MSI nVidia GeForce GT630)
Also Drivers are up-to-date.
I don't mean to spam or be unconstructive, just wanted to look around and see if anyone else had this problem and knows how to solve it.

I don't think your computer is minimising the game, my best guess is another piece of software is trying to gain focus (chat programs like skype etc will often try this when a message is received).

Are you running any other programs when playing tanks?

Nope, usually only Chrome but I also play with that off and the same thing and I always have it off when I play games like Borderlands 2 and X3:AP, also does it to Warthunder.

I don't know, but this is what I would do:

Run WoT windowed and see if another program pops up over the top or if you lose focus of the game.  
If not then create a new user on the computer and play WoT in that see if it works properly.
If it doesn't work properly in a fresh profile then something scwewy (Elmer Fudd) is going on, try a different keyboard or something.

I don't think that will work, I checked the internet for solutions and only found people with the same problem rather than finding a solution.

Special tip just for you Pichu_Trainer: You get rid of that problem by uninstalling the game  :trollface:

Just a thought, but there is/was a software tool to help games by dedicating the resources to it.  I think it was called Razor Game Booster (or something like that).  Maybe that'll help if you can find it, it was free.
