Windows 7: The Strange Problem of Dissappearing App

The Strange Case of the Dissappearing App

OK so this is a strange problem I am facing for last few days. An app suddenly starts and exits, as seen in the taskbar. It's so fast that even after recording the screen video and playing it frame by frame I was unable to read it's name. Event viewer did not help too ! Is there any other way that I can use to determine it's name?

Thanks !

Could be something running in the background, minimized.
Right click on the taskbar and open the Task Manager, maybe you can trace what's the app running so fast!

In my task manager, several background programs are running. How do I know which one is that which "comes and disappears" from the taskbar so fast?
