I have been aggravated by a console window (black background with white letters, like the cmd run window) flashing on my PC for a split second, a few times a minute.
After hours of troubleshooting and using ProcessMonitor to capture transactions on the PC, I managed to track the culprit to be "tunmgr.exe" which Windows Services lists as the executable of the Blackberry Link Communications Manager.
In retrospect, I then realized that the flashing console window problem started appearing upon installing and then upgrading the Blackberry Link.
To drill down further, I used Snagit to video the split-second flash of the evanescent console window, and thus managed to capture the content of the console window using Snagit's frame-by-frame feature.
The capture confirmed the suspicion that Blackberry Link Communications Manager was the cause of the problem.
Furthermore, the console's error message indicated that the argument "-Embedding" was not being recognized, causing the error console to popup.
I am using a Lenovo T430s,64-bit, running on Windows 8, connected to a Q10.
The solution was to kill PeerManager.exe via the taskmanager, which made the popup console window stay away.
I realize that I solved my own problem and that this forum is to post unsolved questions, but I thought worthwhile documenting this so that others facing the same problem do not also spend hours needlessly researching the issue.
I am also hoping that Blackberry developpers read these forum posts and use them to solve problems in between releases of the BB OS (e.g. by removing the argument "-Embedding" from the call to the executable "tunmgr.exe") , so that BB does not unduly lose reputational capital.

I'm running pretty much the same spec as privard, except on Win7 Home, and having exactly the same problem.
It all worked fine with the new laptop I got last week, and was syncing OK up until yesterday. Either a security patch or other piece seems to have played around with the Link application.
I might try and restore the machine to some point before it started playing up to test this hypothesis.
Any help would be much appreciated BB!!!
