Windows 7: Pulsing system tray notification window

I have the same exact problem, but I also had the problem on my old XP machine, so I suspect it's something I've installed like Google Calendar Sync or some such thing. I've tried disabling almost every program but it still occurs. I think it is also a symptom of generally poor performance; there are others in my company with the same exact hardware as me and their systems are much faster/responsive.

This is happening on an i7 machine which is the fastest one I have, and it has no other performance issues. It's still doing it too.

Count me in!

I am having the exact same problem with the pulsing system tray icon. And it is happening on both my home W7 Home Premium 64-bit as well as my work W7 Ultimate 32-bit machines, so I assume it is something I've installed. I also suspected Google Calendar Sync and also disabled it and other suspects to no avail.

It is annoying because you have to time your click in order to show the hidden icons, but beyond that I don't think it impacts performance in any other way (although who knows).

Yes, I'm still having this issue. It only occurs on one of my 4 computers, which all have the same version of windows. The computer having the issue is dedicated to a special use, so it has minimal software (no browsers open, no email client, no anti-virus, nothing), and any software on this computer is also on other computers which do not have the problem. I've just learned to live with it.

One thing you can do is set the icons to always show on the task bar.
