    Windows 8 CP x64

    I've reinstalled OS, got all the drivers working and most of apps too, and so far I'm not getting this bug. Probably not changing theme is helping. We will see after some time ;]

    Just thought I'd mention that I'm having the same problem.

    Edit: switching themes and leaving the color as "automatic" seems to have solved it, as well. I did change the background though.
