Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


Desktop continually refreshes causing flashing desktop icons.


This is fixed in version 10.1.3 - see KB 7002526 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.1.3" which can be found at

Additional Information

The problem is reproducible when any ZENworks icons are present on the desktop, and then an Internet Explorer based application is used to select a file from the desktop.  For example, an application run inside Internet Explorer (gmail, etc.) brings up a file browse dialog box and user navigates to desktop to select a file.  The presence of the ZENworks icon in the application's file browse dialog list triggers a constant NAL refresh.
