Different Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne Problem in Windows 7

    Okay, the problem is, after installing my Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne on m
    Windows 7 beta, 7000build. I can run War3.exe after the installation
    When I restarted my computer, the problem starts here

    Every time I open my War3, It minimizes on my task bar. When I click i
    again, it maximizes for around 1 second then minimizes again. I know it
    running fine because I can hear the sounds of the program and I can se
    the menu for 1 second.

    I'm wondering if this is fixable. I search the internet for simila
    problem but it looks like I'm the only one having this kind of problem.

    I tried Updating my Video Card driver, I think I have the latest.

    Thanks in advance whoever can fix this problem

    Tried system restore, no result.

    Reinstalling my War3, it works. But, whenever I restart my computer
    the problem appear again. I need to shutdown my computer

    Here is my Computer specification

    Done. I fixed it.

    The problem is, with the windows 7 desktop Composition

    Here's the solution.

    Go to the warcraft installation folder
    Select War3.exe then, right click it, properties

    Compatibility -> check -disable desktop composition.

    And no more, minimizing problem

    No. And I think, Microsoft intentionally added that option because, i
    can't be fixed on their side. So, I think, it's up to the game produce
    to add some compatibility in their program

    It's just a thought anyway

    Vista has the same "feature", Desktop Composition, but WC3:FT works just
    fine on Vista, so this is probably a bug introduced in Windows 7, could be
    based on your hardware or something else, but either way when you observe
    something click the send feedback link.

    Just my thought anyway.

But i get exactly the same blinking thing that stops me from playing the game when i use garena. The file does not open and it lowers. I tried clicking properties on the frozen throne file and disabling a couple of things with the compatibility tab, but it does not fix the problem. Please someone help, it never used to be like that when i had windows retarded...it is very urgent as its a source of my little enjoyment...i do not have any other games that i play on the computer so it is important
