 While running a game on WIN7 64 bit I frequently see the full screen minimize all of a sudden for no reason into an icon in my tray.  That usually causes me to fail in the game before I can click on the icon and re-maximize the game screen. 
I have no idea what is causing this. However, I did check the Event Logs and in System I see a frequent Information Level entry in the Windows/System log at the time of the minimization that point to the Service Control Manager as the source with an event ID of 7036.
Can anyone tell me what is causing this and how to stop totally degrades my game playing!

You could have googled "event ID of 7036" and found lots of reasons for this. Try it. Here is one....

Event ID 7036 service entered the stopped state - Service Control Manager

Event ID 7036

   This event is recorded for several services when the computer is powered on. The reason for this is that various services may perform certain tasks at startup and once done they will stop by themselves. In this case, the 7036 event is accompanied by the corresponding 7035 (recorded when the service enter the "running state").

Description:  In my case I got this event with an error message The Portable Device Enumerator Service service entered the stopped state.

After I have googled some time, I got following suggestion for this issue

The Portable Device Enumerator Service enforces group policy for removable mass-storage devices. Enables applications such as Windows Media Player and the Image Import Wizard to transfer and synchronize content using removable mass-storage devices.

You may check if any group policy is enabled regarding removable mass-storage devices or Windows Media Player is tried to synchronize with removable mass-storage devices.

In addition, I would like to suggest you test the issue in Clean Boot to check if there is any third party software conflicts.

Test the issue in Clean Boot
1. Click "Start", click "Run", type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. On the "General" tab, click "Selective Startup", and then clear all of the subsequent check boxes. You will not be able to clear the Use Original BOOT.INI check box.
3. Click "OK", and then click "Restart" to restart your computer.
4. After Windows starts, determine whether the issue reoccurs.
