Is it just tf2 in steam or is it all games?

I had an issue with the new steam interface, where the friends list would take focus and "alt tab" from what game I was playing.

I resolved the issue by launching steam with the old interface. I created a shortcut with the target as:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -nofriendsui

Haven't had any issues since then.

Had this issue happen to me yesterday. It seems to be based after my (AVG) antivirus updated and put TF2 in do-not-disturb mode. I had to delete TF2 in the do-not-disturb tab, simply turning the mode off did not work. I haven't had issues with TF2 since, but have had to do the same with other games.
