Hi I have a very strange problem.
Mp pc has started to minimise application/games all of its own accord..normally about 10-15 mins especially with games. No error messages or other strange things. I can click on the game/application and it pops back up no problem!!!!

Sounds like you have an application running in the background that may be grabbing the attention of the cpu. Look and see if something is set to check or update every so often such as av or email etc
