Lets start off by asking if you all know the sound our computer makes when we hit a button on our keyboard at our desktop and get that error sound. If you know then read on to assist me, thanks.
Ok so I was not sure on how to name this issue, but when I play WoW after a bit I hear that error sound I mentioned at the beginning. I also do not have WoW selectedwhen I hear that sound. Its like I am going to the desktop while I am in game. I thought that it was just WoW but it does it for the internet too. I was thinking that maybe theres a program running in the background that is causeing this.
1. I use dual monitors.

Well don't know what it causes but you are running a lot of background stuff for no reason. I;d msconifg that shizzle and put your computer on a diet. Your memory would thank you. Curse, itunes, bookmark etc. all don't really need to be running in the background when not used.
In all honesty just disable everything, then check if there is anything you are missing the next time you reboot and reactive those (or open the program that you "miss" and reenable start on reboot). Chances are you won't need 99% of them.
Also this might be random but you can disable the error sound, and it might also be something simple as you using a ventrilo key for push to talk that matches one of windows disability keys. I remember I used I think shift back in the day and it would boot me out of games and tell that I activate some blind reading thing or something until I disabled it from the disability functions.
i always wanted to clean it out, but never new what to get rid of. Is there a list I can use on what to keep?
Hi Hablin - you might want to download (free) Advanced SystemCare, They have a startup(similar to msconfig) tab in the toolbox section that gives a
desrciption of each startup entry with a recommendation, and the ability to enable, disable, or delay.
I had 21 entries in my startup, now down to 4, it makes a diff, at least at boot up.
