Everytime I try to join a server, the game minimizes and then when I maximize it again, the game appears all messed up. And this only occurs with ESF. All other games are fine. What is going on?

Does the screen just stay black when you go in or what?
And you don't know why it goes out?
Oh wait, are you using OpenGL, like said above, post your specs, then we can see.

Do you use OpenGL mode?
If so try switching to direct3d or software, otherwise I don't know, get steam.

When was the last time you updated them and what graphics card do you have?

Most likely downloaded the wrong drivers. My friend did that and it gave him an error too.
