I currently can't alt tab out of any games, such as WoW, BF2, etc. If I hit
the alt-tab, the game just hangs until I alt-tab back. I don't actually get
to see the desktop.

Any suggestions?

Used to work just fine. Not sure what has changed this. I've tried disabling

I've had the exact same problem! Alt+Tab from BF2 resulted in:
Me seeing the windows without the fonts...

After updating drivers & stuff & fooling around with the settings.

Try changing your desktop refreshrate to a higher setting than your BF2

Worked 4 me!
