How do I tell what program is raising a notification in Windows 7?

For the past week or so on my work computer, some program has been trying to raise a balloon tip notification and failing. I see the notification for a split-second before it disappears but it disappears too fast for me to see it. I configured the notification area to display all icons, but it looks like the notification is coming from Action Center.

"I'm filing this under ""mysterious computer problem that eventually went away."" I either updated or uninstalled whatever was causing it and now I don't have the issue.

It's been quite some time since your answer, RemyServices, but if you could explain how ProcMon could be used to see what's causing a notification like this? It'd be interesting in case it pops up again."

You can use Process Monitor from Sysinternals to track this down, that is if this is still an issue.
