Every hour or so I get a white window that appears for a half a second then vanishes even when there are no programs running and I'm staring at the desktop.

I've scanned with tdsskiller, malwarebytes and Super Anti Spyware and have found nothing harmful.

Should I be concerned? I've noticed no performance changes or noticeable change in my storage space.

How often does it pops ? Try to launch activity monitor when it happens and see which process does that.
Or if you don't want to search anymore, just put your important files on an external hard drive and reinstall windows, then put back your files.

It's probably nothing. That being said, hit ctrl+shift+escape and watch your processes. You mentioned no performance or storage issues, but it may be hogging resources that are otherwise idle, so you wouldn't notice them.
