Disable flashing poping up taskbar

Hello everyone,
I have searched for working solution on my problem but couldn't find one.
My task-bar is set to auto hide mod, but when I'm using some application with few windows opened, whenever the action is required in specific window the task-bar is popping up with flashing bar of that window. I try to disable this by tweaking registry: ForegroundLockTimeout set to 0 or 1 (different forums give different numbers) and ForegroundLockTimeout set to 0. But this not working for me. Notification area has nothing to deal with this applet because it is not there. So anybody know solution how to stop task-bar from flashing and popping out? Temporary I use small tool called HideTaskbar but this is not what I want to.

What alerts are popping up ?
Use Clean boot,

Click Start and type in the search box,
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,
See the links above my signature on how to take and upload screen shots here.

Thanks @ThrashZone,
but there is no alert. Just active window bar on taskbar flashes and taskbar even in autohide mode is showing up. Later I will do some screen shots.
