Fullscreen games minimizing and not maximizing to fullscreen

Hey, I've got this weird problem. When I play a fullscreen game like Far Cry 2 or Crysis and alt-tab away the game won't re-enter fullscreen mode when I start playing again.

I thought I had it narrowed down to just dx10 games, because I'm not getting any trouble from CS:S, but Stalker CoP and Battlefield BC2 make the transition perfectly. So I'm stumped, any ideas?

Just a note: Most of the games don't actually minimize, they just go into window mode and i can see the taskbar. Maybe this is a new alt-tab behavior? Anyone know if any Windows settings exist to change that?


The rig:
Asus Sabertooth x58
i7-950 @ 4.5Ghz
6GB Corsair Dominator 1600mhz
2x GTX580 SLI
Corsair c300 ssd (sataIII)
Creative X-Fi Titanium HD
Win7 Pro x64

All you do is click in the game window and press Alt + Enter and it will expand to full screen again :)
