Default This is Weird

Ok I got a weird one for ya. When I am playing games on my XP system, once and a while the game exits and gos to the desktop and opens the search menu. I am not sure why this is happening. Also Im sorry if I posted this in wrong area I was unsure where to put it in PC Gaming or operating systems so I just put it here.

OMG I just figured it out, sorry guys. I just bought a new Logitech mouse and there is a stupid button on the mouse that brings up the search menu and I keep on accidentally hitting it. I may get me another new mouse because that is frustrating.
