Crazy flickering during update of Windows client since ~7.4.750

Since around version 7.4 the updater seems to spawn a myriad of processes, which cause flickering (console?) windows and taskbar entries, often interfering with focus while I work. Since the updater kicks in whenever it pleases this is unexpected, uncommon and feeling broken. I hope you can prevent this.

    I'm not sure what could be causing this, @thomasstache. The updater runs silently – that is, it has no UI – so it shouldn't spawn anything at all. I also don't see anything like this myself. If you download the installer from our downloads page and run it, do you see the same behavior? This will run the same process as updating, in theory, just without actually changing anything. If you do see the same thing, is it something you might be able to capture a video of so we can get a better look at it? Thanks!
