World of Warcraft and Steel Security

I have recently installed Steel Security and on the whole am very impressed with it, however, I do have one very annoying problem. While playing World of Warcraft I keep getting dumped out to desktop with the game minimized on the task bar. Clicking on the task bar gets me back into the game in a few seconds but as any WoW players reading this will appreciate, getting dumped out in the middle of fighting The Prince in Karazhan would be more than a little irritating.

The problem is definately with Steel as uninstallng the software removes the problem.

Has anyone had and resolved this problem and if so how.

Edit: I found a registry tweak that prevents programs from stealing the window focus from other programs and used that last night but this has still not removed this annoying problem.

Thanks in advance

Hmm. I might have to try out steel to have a look at it. Maybe it is a tweak that will exclude WoW..

In the mean time, try another game that connects to the internet, like WC3 TFT or Guildwares or EQ,,
