I've recently encountered an odd problem. Certain games and programs are closing out to desktop. No crash, nothing..it just closes right to desktop. I've tryed closing anything running in the background to see if that might be an issue, nope still happens.

I really don't have a clue what could be causing this. Can I get some help?

You could try running them from the command line. Often this will produce an error message that you don't see when clicking on icons or menus. It won't solve your problem, but it may give you a clue as to what the underlying problem is.

Thanks for the responses. It seemed to be a registry problem. I fixed it with CCleaner and restarted and everything works properly now.
