Please tell me if you have this problem, and if turning off Aero fixes it.

Running the game in full screen does not exhibit this problem.

Thanks,
Ian

I have this very problem. When I turn off (Windows-7) Aero (by changing the theme to a non-aero theme (i.e. basic theme) the problem still occurs.

This time nothing responded, not even ctrl + alt + del. I ended up killing the power to my computer. :(

No, that is not what I mean. I might've misunderstood the issue you stated. My issue is that when I minimize (non fullscreen) the game, it freezes my computer. Side effects include: computer frozen until a hard shutdown or graphics driver crash.
