    This Works: (posted by Indy)

    "You can also simply rename the file AdobeExplorerExtensionCore.dll (in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe OS Extension) to something like AdobeExplorerExtensionCore.dll.defect.
    Restricting access to this folder could prevent the Adobe installer from installing a possible fix in the future."

    Instantly got rid of the behaviour! Thanks!

    Also a Post about it on Reddit:

    We started noticing the same thing on several of our Windows 10 systems today. It was never notice before Tuesday that opening a network folder, the blue circle appears for a split second. No new windows updates or software. Nothing appears in the event log. Rebooted several times. Full shut downs. Going to run Windows updates and see if it resolves the issue.
