Comp Minimizes/Out of Focus

Just got a brand new comp, installed windows 7 home premium. Only installed ATi catalyst driver and TP Link driver(wireless net).

While playing a game or watching a movie(this is on another HDD), it exits out of full screen or minimizes out and goes to desktop(also does this in firefox where i have to select it again). I have tried copying it to the main HDD and the same thing so thats not the problem.

I have no clue i have basically spent the whole day re-installing windows(different versions) to figure this out and i have no absolutely no idea. Also tested not installing the GPU driver and watching a movie and same thing.

This wasn't happening yesterday only for movies not games. But how can this happen on both versions of Windows? Could it be something else not the software?

System specs
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K
MOBO: Asrock Z68 Extreme3 B3
RAM: G.Skill-NT 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1333
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB x2
GPU: Asus 1GB 6950 PCI-E VGA Card
CASE: Antec 300
PSU: Antec HCG

any help would be greatly appreciated

AVG caused this problem a while ago. What antivirus software do you have installed?
