Diablo II minimizing?

Ok, so my friends and I were gonna start playing Diablo II together, so I grabbed my disks and reinstalled the game. Everything went smoothly, no errors or anything, so after I had both the main game and the lord of destruction expansion installed I tried to play and it started the opening cenimatic but then immediately minimized itself. I click the minimized game and its at the main menu, but then it immediately minimizes again. I have no idea whats wrong, it happened with Mechcommander 2 as well, but I didn't care too much when it happened there because I wasnt really interested in replaying it. Keep in mind, I have run both of these games successfully before so I dunno what is wrong with it all now.

Anyone have a suggestion to what I can do to fix this?

    When that used to happen to me on my old computer, I would alt-tab back to the game and rapidly click my left mouse button. Don't ask me why it worked but it did . . .

    Are you running Vista? Vista and Diablo II have problems with each other and I had to install something else in order to play Diablo II again.

    Try windowed mode. IIRC, add -w to the shortcut command line. ("c:[stuff]" -w)
