Spanish term or phrase: saltar
Included in instructions for running a multi-player computer game. The full text is:

No se permite cambiar a otra tarea mientras XXX está en marcha. El programa se ha cerrado automáticamente. Algunas personas podrían usarlo para explotar bugs y queremos que el juego esté libre de trucos o cualquier tipo de 'cheating'. Recuerda cerrar todos los programas que pudieran 'saltar' mientras juegas.

Could this refer to other programs "popping up"?

Thanks a lot!

Explanation:
Maybe it means crashing. It advices you to close the programs so that they won't crash and make the game crash, too.

Good luck.

yes, pop up/ popping up


Explanation:
I personally would translate the last sentence as: Remember to close all other programs that could pop up while you're playing.
Or you could say: Remember to close all other programs that could pop up windows while you're playing.
