Game "minimizes" while playing

Hey guys, hope I can find some help here.  Would really like to play the game, but I can't get very far without this issue happening.  


What happens is that the game will randomly freeze, black screen and then minimize, and yet it'll still play like I'm in game (game sounds, menu sounds when I hit escape, that sort of thing), but all I can see is my desktop.  All I can do is bring up the task manager and end the program because I've tried every possible way I can think of to bring it back to the front.

 I've seen people on the forums mention the DxDiag thing, so I went ahead and did that.  Firstly though, I've already verified the game cache, deleted and reinstalled the game, and tried a couple of other work-arounds from the PC Gamers Wiki.  Here's the link to the diagnostic: pastebin.com/CfuwYjaG

Thanks in advance.  Kinda at my wits end here.  :(

That was the first thing I did on the forums.  Tried everything I could.  Nothing seems to work.  



Well, earlier I got a message from my graphics driver saying that it halted and then restarted, so at least I know what is going on now, sort of.  Problem is that it being something to do with my drivers is that they are completely updated and apparently no one else has had this issue.
