Having an issue where when I'm in game every now and then the desktop flickers through the game, I updated the graphics drivers, adjusted many settings but it still happens.

I have another issue where if the launcher loads up the game when the computer does something else like I get an IM pop up it will hang and crash, or if I get into the game and need to alt tab to another program for example looking up the STO wiki the game will hang and crash I should be able to multitask on my computer without it hanging and having to reload the game every single time I tab out

I believe these two issues could be related as while I was doing Crystaline Entity a few days ago the desktop flickered through the game causing the game to briefly hang, then it went back to normal, then the game froze followed by a blue screen, the blue screen code contained an ATI SYS file, I updated the GFX Drivers, Problem still exists

I thought it might have been windows but playing my account on a different computer with the same operating system (windows 7) it doesn't have this issue so it's something to do with this computer.

Mainboard is Gigabyte 990FXA-D3
Graphics card is ATI Sapphire HD 7770.
CPU is AMD 8 core FX8150 Black edition.
RAM is Corsair Vengence LP 16GB DDR3.

Edit:
disabling Aero didn't work as predicted I went back to the game after writing this post and unsurprisingly hang and crash, error info below.
