    I have the same issue +1. It happens all the time to me, no matter what I do, just keeps on poping up and then auto-hiding again. I thought maybe it's some tray icons so I disabled all of them; but it keeps poping up, very annoying, can someone suggest a fix please?
    Note I'm using Windows 8, upgrade from Windows 7

    Update:

    I disabled the "Action Centre" icon in the tray, and the poping in and out seems to have stopped. See screenshot.
