MS Office update - Popup Bug

Have you noticed that mysterious window that flashes up on your desktop every hour for a split second and vanishes again....

Apparently a bug was introduced in a recent office update, and it relates to OfficeBackgroundTaskHandlerRegistration

There is a fix on the way, but don't know when......it isn't really causing me any grief, but if you are playing a game or the like in full screen, it may throw you back to the desktop, which would start to get annoying!

You can read about it here.
