Lately when i'm doing anything, like watching netflix instant. Or playing a steam game it will just go to the desktop, not crash. It just clicks to the desktop. There hasn't been any hardware changes. I'm running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

Does the program close at all or is it still running, i.e. is the program icon still in the task bar?

My PC does something similar, never thought much of it.
Sometimes it just changes the window that's in context. I assumed my hands were straying or something!

I won't even be touching the computer. Watching netflix from a distance or a DVD and it will just exist full screen randomly.

So annoying.

It could be some program that’s running in the background which is causing this. Use Msconfig to remove unused [or partially used] programs from windows start up. Click on the link for How to use MSCONFIG in Windows 7 guide; http://netsquirrel.com/msconfig/msconfig_win7.html

(Do not remove your Anti-Virus program from start-up, as well as Java ™ from Sun Micro System, and programs from Microsoft/Intel/AMD Corporations).
………………………………………………………………………………………………
Check your components manufacture website for latest drivers, especially graphics.
………………………………………………………………………………………………

Also download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, to make sure there’s no malware in your system. http://www.malwarebytes.org/

………………………………………………………………………………………………

Last but not least Run System File Checker, to make sure your system files is not corrupted.

To Run System File Checker, do as follows;

Click on Windows Icon

Right click on cmd and click Run as administrator

Type sfc /scannow
(it would take between 5-10 minutes to do the scan)
