Steal This Focus

Something is stealing focus on my Windows 7 HTPC. How do I figure out what application it is so that I can get rid of it?

I have an HTPC running Windows 7 that is having a very aggravating problem. Whenever I am running a fullscreen application, whether it is playing a game, watching fullscreen video, or running Windows Media Center, it will suddenly minimize to the taskbar. It seems as if some application is popping up and stealing focus, but there no obvious application open. It just minimizes to whatever other windows were open on the desktop before I started doing my fullscreen thing.
I have tried tracking what time this happens, but it seems random.
How do I figure out which program is causing the problem?
