Sounds to me like some other program interfering with it. Do you have any instant message clients open, like AIM or MSN? Those sometimes force other applications to minimize in order to show a message. Try closing all of those. If not, it may be some sort of spyware program.

right click the .exe file change compatability to Windows 2000. hopefully that should work. if not, keep this topic updated and il look more thoroughly into the problem.

I recommend shutting off Yahoo and Xfire. It may be a Direct X issue of some sort, with Xfire interfering with Halo. That's happened to me before.
