It looks like a camera, maybe some kind of screenshot program or something?

These processes appear to be 3rd party programs, from what I can find on google; Though neither of them seem to have anything to do with cameras/screen capturing software.

Do the games just minimize or fully close-out?

  • DCSHelper.exe (both of them)
  • IDMan.exe

The Games Just Minimize and I can go back to it without crashing. But it's Just annoying, every minute it keeps minimizing.. I even tried to update my Video Cards,Well as for the Weird Application that's popping out in the Task bar. I don't have any camera capturing divice attached or installed to my laptop. Any Ideas?

Only flashes on-screen for a second and is rather pixelated, but it does look like either a camcorder or digital camera is on it. So yeah....It IS a laptop, Have you ever tried clicking on it though?

Possibly the reason why it keeps popping up is your system keeps detecting it. Either as a glitch, or a loose connection being the problem.

No need to bump Bash23, thread was still very much on the first page

Another idea:
  1. Open up your Task Manager
  2. Go to the Performance Tab and click on Resource Monitor near the bottom
  3. In the new window that pops up click on the CPU tab, and choose to sort the list by Status (descending (down arrow))
  4. Run whatever game you want that triggers your problem.
  5. Once that icon has flashed up on your taskbar once and minimized your game, check the Resource Monitor.
  6. You should (hopefully) have a new procress near/at the top that is greyed out and labeled as Terminated under the Status column. Note, if anything does show up, it will not be there for long.
If a process does show up like that, post what it's name is. With any luck, that's the source of the problem, provided the idea works to begin with. That method won't catch every possible cause. So, things like what Shadow of Death was talking about.

I see you have this solved, but just in case anyone else has this problem...

The same thing happened to me. I noticed you're running Avast, and that's what was causing the problem for me. It worked fine before I installed it and after I uninstalled it. I think its because of the popup notifications, and from what i could tell, there was no way to disable them. Hope this helps. :)

Hello guys. I got a similar problem. My games minimize, my programs act like I was clicking on the taskbar but wasn't using my mouse at all, taskbar appears while watching a movie in full screen... But the most weirdest thing is that that little program doesn't appears like on the other guys windows. It's really annoying especially while tipeing a document or something like that. And that happens every 1-2 mins. Can or did some 1 find a solution for that?? I and the rest of us would apriciate the help.
Forward thx
P.S.
Sry if I messed up a few words
