Full screen not working in windows 10


I am running RealFlight 7.5 on my Windows 10 system. Everything works fine in windowed mode but I receive the error "D3DERR_INVALIDCALL" when ever I try to enter full screen and then the program crashes.
I have installed the DirectX components that come on the RealFlight DVD but this has not fixed the issue.

Any thoughts?

Full Screen to Windowed Mode notes.
I cant speak first hand, for RF8, as I am still in 7.5. But:

Improper screen resolution setting, in RF 7.5, resulted in numerous crashes, switching between Full screen, and Windowed mode.
Cure: Going to Simulation>Settings>Graphics>Hardware>Resolution. I set RF settings to native resolution, for my laptop screen.

Attempting to switch from Full screen mode, to Windowed Mode, specifically, using:
Simulation>Settings>Graphics>Hardware>Full Screen sometimes causes an error, In 7.5.
File DXViewPort.cpp
Line 1559

Switching between Full Screen and Windowed Mode, and Back, using ALT Enter, works, repeatedly. With proper screen Resolution Settings.

There was another situation I encountered, that was causing a Crash, Switching Between Modes.
My Antivirus, at the time, (WEBROOT) would cause a crash, Switching between Modes,
After a New RealFlight Update, or if I tried to use a New Beta Version.
The problem; the Antivirus was not recognizing/accepting the New Code.
To test, I temporarily Disabled my Antivirus, and found, using ALT Enter, now worked
Heres a link with more on Antivirus info:

Changing the screen resolution to the monitors native version under: Simulation>Settings>Graphics>Hardware>Resolution fixed the issue.

Thank you!
