This has never happened to me. What are your system specs? What firewall/anti-virus do you run? What other applications may be running? Spyware infected? Virus infection? Non-standard Windows (or a heavily modified Windows)? Defective memory chip? Drive space free? This could be caused by a 1,000 different things.
Let's just say that I am IT specialist and, without any false modesty, PC expert (and that this means that I have good and 100% stable machine at home that I personally assembled) with 15+ years of experience in this field.
Believe me it's not my machine... it's GGWaW acting strange after Alt-Tab due to some reason...
My strong belief is that this, possibly, has something to do with resolution (my desktop is at 1280x1024x32) whilst GGWaW is 1024x768.
Just regular WinXP Pro (Intel P4 3.0 GHz, 1 GB DDR, i875 chipset, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro).
I don't have any resident AntiVirus running because I always scan manually (never in my life had virus at home or at work if that matters) and that I sit behind LINUX machine that works as firewall.
