Preferred Solution: Refreshing/ flashing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I'm having this serious problem right now where my windows (i.e. Firefox, Task Manager) continiously "toggle" out of them and them "toggle" back. A loading sign is seen on my screen before the window flashes for a second and re-appears. It's making tasks very difficult and I have no idea what's causing this.

Windows7 64bit


In my Windows 7 (x64 bit)(all latest patches), when I open Device Manager, the entire list disappears and instantly reappears EVERY 2 SECONDS.
Strangely there is no sign any errors in the Devices that are being listend.

Also the sound card is also making a pong-pong sound - every 2 seconds. It sounds like two (low-ish) strings of a guitar being plucked... they are about 1 octave apart in pitch...

The pong-pong sounds are not QUITE in synch with the refreshing frequency of the Device Manager.

Any thoughts?
Do I have a virus? Or some weird conflict... ? or what?


A:Device Manager list flashing off/refreshing every 2 sec


Run a thorough anti virus scan

Download and run malwebytes.

Check the sound card, may be defective, and Look for current drivers.

If there are no virus and the sound card is ok, use a sytem restore from before the problem. That should bring everything back to normal

As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another.

Hi Everyone!

I just joined and hopefully I can be of some help for others, but for starters I need to ask for help for myself! Before posting this, I did a search of the forums here but did not find anything identical to my issue.

I have a 10-month old Acer 5100 notebook that will no longer start Windows Vista (Home Premium if that matters).

A few nights ago I noticed the machine was at the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen (black background/white text). Unfortunately I was not around the machine when it got into this mode. The screen showed a list of 5 or less choices - I think the default highlighted choice was to let Windows search the hard disk for errors. I chose this but it didn't seem to start after watching it for several minutes. So being the impatient sort, I rebooted the PC and the same black screen with choices displayed. This time I selected 'Start Windows Normally' but when the system came back up it ends at the same screen again. (I believe the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen I was seeing was not the normal one I've always seen, but a different one with less choices, if that makes sense)

So I said forget this, I have a backup. I tried restoring a backup of the hard drive I made with Acronis True Image (I booted off the True Image CD). I chose to only restore just the C: partition. Both times I tried, it gets to over 50% complete then there's a message about the image being corrupt.

So I shu... Read more

When I installed Windows 8 on the day it was released, I had to do a refresh because the apps in Store were not working right. As I remember there were others having the same problem. Today I ordered a laptop for our granddaughter which will, of course, have Windows 8 on it. Does anyone know if there is still an issue where a refresh is needed?


I have been here for awhile, and I have not heard of anyone having to do an out-of-the box refresh because the apps were not working.

Hi guys, I was a part of seven forums for awhile.

I'm trying to troubleshoot my PC. Hopefully I'll figure this out soon. I mean hell I'm A+ certified I feel ashamed even asking for help but..

Lately I've been having a lot of issues with corrupted files, and things not working in 8. IE, I can't get into the "change PC settings" screen instead it prompts me that files are corrupted and I should pop in my installation disk and refresh my settings. However I installed using a USB flash drive and have no DVD drive in my rig. So it won't let me refresh. I tried mounting the image I also tried following one of the guides here for refreshing it via USB with no avail. So instead I booted it straight up from the USB installation flash drive and chose troubleshoot my PC and tried refreshing it from there. It error'd out and gave me this "refresh your pc this option is not supported on the operating system you've selected"

My OS is currently installed on an SSD. Intel 520 series one. I've had issues with this drive in the past. Randomly my LoL won't launch and it'll say that it's been corrupted and i've had to reinstall.

I've tried doing sfc /scannow and it DOES find corrupted files and attempts to fix them, however after I reboot nothing has changed.

Any suggestions/input would be MUCH appreciated!

We have a web based software that we provide our clients that is accessed via a shortcut on their desktop. The first time the client accessed the site everything worked okay. However, when they try to access it now, it's almost like it is caching old information in there and not refreshing the website, so when they login it just pops back to the program's login screen.

We have tried clearing the history and made sure the reuse windows box was unchecked. Any ideas of what else we can try? I almost think something in IE9 is corrupt or not updating properly.

A:IE9 not Refreshing

I don't have an Internet Explorer 9 browser in front of me, but I'll take a stab at this, to see if I can help.


Press F12 while in your browser, to enter Development Tools.

Next, select the Cache menu (towards the top)

Then choose "always refresh from server"


This should effectively allow bypassing of cache, to show what's "really" there.

Let us know if that helps or doesn't help!

I read a similar thread, but thought it better to start anew.

Win XP sp2
Onboard video.
Comodo Internet Suite (scanned.)

Every so often, I think randomly but maybe a minute or so, there is a quick flicker of my screen, and if I am mouse holding the scroll button, or making a selection, either text or image, or have my mouse on a menu choice, I lose that control. I have to re-select, or click and hold on the scroll button to regain control.

This happens in any programme: word processor, photo editor, browser etc.

Sometimes, when the flicker occurs, a tiny icon appears in the taskbar. It is too quick to see properly, band when I tried to video capture it, the flicker would not occur.

There is also a very brief burst of disc activity. Maybe 1/2 second.

So it looks as if something is refreshing something when it thinks there is little or no activity.The title bar of the window I am working in goes rapidly white, so the window is losing focus during the activity, then regaining it very rapidly.

I have not been using this machine very long, so I can't tell exactly when it started. When I first noticed it, I assumed I had simply lifted the mouse button or something.

I can start stripping stuff away to see if anything that I have loaded is causing it, but given its rapidity and random nature this could be time-consuming, so I am asking if anyone has seen this who could suggest a possible reason...somewhere to narrow it down a bit.

thanks for any help

I need to do a reinstall, but I don't want to lose absolutely everything. I've got about 500gb of media I want to keep, and I've got a load of Steam games installed I don't really want to have to redownload. Will it keep all that?

And other than that, is it just like doing a reinstall?

A:What exactly does refreshing my PC keep?

When you reinstall the OS you would normally lose everything stored on the partition in question. Data on other partitions or drives should be untouched but for safety you should assume this will be lost as well. All applications, even if on a different partition or drive, will need to be reinstalled. All files of any importance need at least one backup copy while those of particular importance need 2 or more backup copies. Data can be lost dues to hardware failure and a variety of other causes as well. You need to be prepared when (not if) something happens.

I'm currently experiencing a strange problem with my laptop. Whenever I certain gaming program run in the background (not in focus) the applications seem to shift back and forth from from "Running" and "Not Responding" almost like it constantly refreshes itself (every 3 or so seconds). However, if I keep one of those programs in focus, the problem doesn't occur as often.

A:icons keep refreshing


Sounds like it might be a sticky ALT key or Windows key. Have you tried a different keyboard?

If you don't have a spare keyboard to try, tap on all the keys a few times to make sure nothing is sticking and the next time it happens, quickly press the TAB key and see if it switches between open Windows like ALT-TAB does. If it does that means one of the ALT keys is sticking for sure. Or try pressing the letter e to see if it brings up Windows Explorer like WindowsKey-e does. Then it is the Windows key.

If it is a wireless keyboard, make sure that there are no other wireless mice or keyboards nearby that might have a key or button pressed down or are being used by somebody near you.

The "blue circle" is the windows busy cursor. It can be caused by too little ram, too many apps open or a problem with the system.

Hello all, TIA.
I am trying to refresh my 8 install in the hope it will correct a couple of little issues on one of my notebooks.
The process went along fine until it decided to see if the PC was 'ready' to install.
Despite the fact that the battery is full, it insists on me having the power plugged in. I did that and it refuses to accept that it is plugged in, it just keeps telling me to plug it in.
I have checked the power point, the cable seems fine, it is plugged in everywhere it should be and there is a little light says that I am plugged in, which goes out the instant I unplug.

How can I get this thing to do what it should?

I recently performed a fresh install of XP Pro with service pack 2, and all has gone well with the exception of a couple of programs that I knew in advance would not work with SP2.

There is one other minor problem, however, that I can live with, but would like to resolve if possible.

The recycle Bin icon on the desktop does not automatically refresh and change from "empty" to "full" (or vice-versa) when putting files in it or when emptying it. It does change when I manually refresh the screen by keying F5.

Has anyone seen this problem before and/or have any suggestions as to if anything can be done to correct it?

Thanks in advance!

(Oh, yes, there have been no third party mods made to the recycle bin. No Norton, etc.)

This is the same when downloading a file, it shows only when i refresh! any ideas on what's going on? i would say it was my fault, but this is tthe second installation....it's totally clean.
Anyway, if i reboot the computer this issue is gone. but it appears from time to time

I just get time to click on a file I want to recover and the page refreshes and I've lost my selection. Even when I don't select anything, its keeps refreshing. I've deleted all files, deleted the recycle bin, allowed windows to recreate it and its still happening.

Anyone know whats going on here

Thanks for an help

Everything still kinda works but everytime I or any of my roommates log in to their accounts on our computer, the taskbar refreshes like every 10 seconds and the desktop disappears. It comes back a second later but every window I've opened doesn't show up again.
I ran a scan with my antivirus thingy and it says I have vurtumonde or something, a trojan, and always this Mal-Behav thing that it can't remove.
Anyway, nothing seems to help...
Any relief here?

Hi folks,
This is probably a stupid question, BUT, here goes.....
My Windows 7 Ultimate installation if getting sluggish to boot, it is now taking 3 to 4 minutes to get to a stage where I can work with it. Once up and running it is not too bad, but not as sharp as it used to be. The installation will be around 3 years old.

Is there any way to "refresh" this installation other that a complete re-install?


A:Refreshing Windows 7

When Win7 is installed there should be a backup image saved of the finished install so that if it ever becomes sluggish or irreparable you can simply reimage it to the HD in 20 minutes. Your files need to be backed up separately, ideally in real time using a service such as Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with OneDrive.

If you haven't done that then you can go over the present install closely to check everything and optimize it using the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

There is a step for a Repair Install which wil reinstall the OS while keeping all of your programs, files and settings in place. But often corrupt settings can be passed back through so it is not anywhere near as effective as a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which steps are the same for retail.

this may be a dft question and knowing me it probably is but when i,m on any forum based site like on here
i have to refresh my page to see any new posts does everyone have to do that or is it just me asking silly questions even when i,ve been in a chatroom on my football site i have to refresh to see any replies thanks in advance for any help

A:Refreshing Pages

As far as I know, everyone has to do it, unless you use a program that does it for you, at a predetermined time interval.

The page you loaded, is the page you see, and it won't change.
After you load it, it becomes an old page.
Refreshing, loads a new page, which has the most recent post, at the time of the refresh.

Alright, it started with the missing Ibm00001.exe error file message. I fixed that using the nifty search button. Then for some reason, my computer started to act reallly slow and began to refresh the desktop icons and menu bar, but no error message showed. Only in safe mode is it running at normal speed and not refreshing now.

I have followed the instructions of the "Slow computer sticky" CCleaner, Defrag, AVG, A2, PC tools, Norton anti-virus, Stinger.
Since this only applies to a normal bootup, I think its a malicious program that starts.

So lets refresh the symptoms(no pun intended): On a normal bootup, it becomes as slow as an old lady driving a car with add. No programs can be opened, no windows will appear. Screen icons and "Start taskbar" with the icons will constantly refresh between 5-30 seconds. No virus was detected using A2, AVG, Norton, PC Tools, STinger. Cleared all Caches etc with CCleaner and used SpeeDefrag.

Please Help?

A:Can Only Be Described As Refreshing Background..

You are or were infected with the Torpig.C TrojanThis trojan can be very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums. You should consider all your passwords to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. Do not change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.

I am running Windows 8.1. Originally I had Windows 8 installed on my machine and I updated to Windows 8.1. I have files that are corrupted and I intend refreshing my PC but the process involves inserting the installation disk. But the installation disk I have is for Windows 8. Does that mean, after refreshing my PC, the operating system will be back to Windows 8 and I will have to download Windows 8.1. all over again? And would all my settings, documents and e-mail folders all be wiped out? If so, how do I make backups of these? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

A:Refreshing PC with Windows 8.1

Hello Mike, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Unless you created a custom refresh image sometime after updating to Windows 8.1, then yes it'll refresh back to Windows 8.

If you are using a Microsoft account, then your personal settings are synced by default, and will be restored afterwards. Your user account and files in your "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder will not be affected by a refresh. Here's more details on what would be affected by a refresh.

What email program are you using? It would be a good idea to back up anything for it to be safe.
