    Ever since installing Windows Home Server Console on my Vista Home Premium
    machine, the Start menu orb flickers on and off randomly. I know it's a
    problem with the WHS Console since it goes away after I kill the process in
    Task Manager. Anyone else with this problem?

    No, I don't have that problem with Home Server Connector on my VHP.
    You might try removing and reinstalling the Connector software.

  3. I don't use Windows Home Server (I have Windows Server 2003), but I have
    noticed several people that have this issue in these newsgroups. It is a
    known problem.

    I suggest you search Google Groups with some relevant search terms, as
    surely an answer is out there.

    Strange- I had it happen on my original install of Vista and then again when
    I reinstalled after getting a new hard drive. I even tested the release
    candidate of SP1 and it still flickered. I'll try to reinstall the Console
    when I get home from work today.

    @Synapse Syndrome
    I'll give it a go and see if I can find anything, but doesn't going to a
    Google Group kind of defeat the purpose of Vista Communities? :)

  5. Google Groups archives all the Microsoft newsgroups. I do not think the
    Communities web interface for the groups even carries all the groups, and
    probably does not archive them either.

    Anyway, I found the post that I remembered."+flicker#5080ca82ffcb5790
