I tried and there is no problem on my system and with my game...
Quote: " Tried it again and this is what happens.
1) Run game
2)Use windows key to get taskbar up
3)Click a few apps on task bar, they work OK
4)Go back to game, all is OK
6) Things APPEAR to stop responding, but what's happening is that the taskbar is screwed up. Windows are maximising but not coming to the front, so it appears like they are not responding. The Z-order of the tasks seems to be buggered. They're hidden behind the VC++ IDE window. If you minimise the other windows the apps are there and responding."
