Windows 7: Device Manager - flickering close button

Device Manager - flickering close button


This is only a minor issue but one that I noticed when browsing through the device manager. I did a clean install of Win 7 Home Premium x64 on my laptop yesterday. When I open a device's properties and hover my cursor over the 'x' close button, it starts flickering. This happens for every entry in device manager. This is the only location where I have seen this occur so far.

Does this happen for anybody else?

Thanks in advance,

It happens. Some sort of bug that's been there for a long time now since the beta days. Don't know why it's never been fixed. Nothing to worry about though.

Many thanks for that. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a problem with my set up.
