The Icon Notification Window opens when I the 'Show hidden Icons' button is pushed. But when the mouse pointer is moved towards the window it closes. I have found that if I hold down the left mouse button when I move the pointer the window will stay open (kind of a funky work around!). However, I have also found that popup time frames in the Outlook schedule and calendars Quicken react similarly. i.e., they close before a xelection can be made or when you attempt to move the slide bar. I have also noted (particularly in RoboForm) that when the right click window opens it is simply a grey outlined box and you need to 'slide' the mouse pointer down the window to reveal the contents, have noticed similar results in other programs but can't recall (but do know it happens in the Office 2003 Suite).

My apologies if this question has been asked and resolved previously but over the past hour I have tried innumerable words and phases without success.

It happens to me, and sometimes you just gotta be faster then the window can close. I don't know what causes it to do that.
