Yes! you don't run it in full screen mode. Whilst it will still fit to screen it won't bug when you alt tab, since it is part of that window. It might sometimes lag a bit after switching back but give it a few seconds.
Hope it helps, was hell for me since I record games and lost part of a save I was using for a lets play, luckily did not loose much progress. Set auto save to every 2 or 4 saves and manually save often incase of other crashes. It is afterall an 8 year old game running on 64 bit.
