I've been having an ongoing issue when trying to start up games. I have my various games pinned to my taskbar, and sometimes, when I try to click on them to start 'em up, the icon lights up for a moment, but then fades and the program doesn't start.
If I go into my task manager, a process is running for each one, but the programs don't actually start.
It doesn't seem to happen with any specific amount of frequency, so I'm not sure what the cause is. Any ideas as to where I could begin troubleshooting this problem?
Operating system is Windows 7.
