Do you have an Internet Security product installed - KIS, NIS, N360, etc...?

I have that problem constantly myself. I think it might be an Adobe add on problem.

Ive now got this problem..i find if i click( it doesn't matter whether its right or left button) on the bottom info bar it clears a lot quicker ..but i would still prefer a permanent fix
Any up date on fix or what might be causing it
