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

anyone?!!!! please!!!==========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. 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

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 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

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!

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!

I am running Windows 8.1 on an HP computer less than a year old. It was working fine this morning when I started it up. I then went to a psychology assessment website and tried to download a pdf of assessment results. It wouldn't open in my Nuance PDF Pro program, so I emailed it to myself and opened in Adobe Reader. After that my desktop and open programs started flashing on and off. I was able to close programs and was left with the screen going blue, then wallpaper and task bar reloading, and then icons loading. The refresh is very quick, about 1 second. I was able to use the Windows + I key on one occasion to get to a place where I could run a restore to the previous day. When the computer restarted, it continued to refresh at a slower rate that gradually sped up to it's current speed of about 1 second. I was also able to get eset to run. It found two files of the Whilokii virus, which I had it clean. The problem persisted. I also tried removing the battery per a post on a similar problem someone had, and the problem persists. I have tried to get into safe mode, but the refresh is so fast that pressing Windows + I does not allow me enough time to press the Change PC Settings button.

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.

Hello, thank you for viewing.

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. The task bar always seems to be moving as a result of this (almost doing a dance if I open enough programs that have this problem).

I've tried updating drivers, installed all service packs, scanned computer with Malware Bytes, Norton... nothing seems to fix the issue.

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.

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?

Does anyone know why Yahoo keeps "refreshing" itself? I like to stay signed in just in case someone needs to talk to me. But every so often Yahoo will bring it the front as the active program. This becomes very aggervating while in the middle of a game or a word document.
Why does it do that? And can I stop it??.......

Thank you

I dont even know how to call this problem. I tried every thread everywhere, found nothing like it.

So here's whats going on - pc screen is doing what appears to be refreshing itself on a mouse click. Randomly, not on every click. Fx, when changing tabs firefox will flash all white and no change will take place. Same for browsing harddrive or anywhere around. Sometimes it happens 2 to 10 times in a row. So it may take 10 attempts and 10 refreshing screens to navigate anywhere.
The worst is when a windows is minimized. To bring it up again can be a pain in the bottom. It just wont respond!
On top of that, rarely, but it will do multiple refreshes in a row which makes pc look like its having a stroke.

I noticed it began shortly after reg cleanup. System restore or such is not an option anymore at this point, unfortunatly.

An important exam is comming up and my laptop has to work till then!
Any help will be greatly appriciated!

This is an odd problem, but the first thing I'd check is to make sure your graphics drivers are up to date. If your graphics drivers are corrupt or missing, your computer then has to use your regular processor to draw the frames you see on the screen which can lead to odd behavior because it can't keep up. If the computer is being sluggish and not responding to maximizing windows and things like that, I'd also examine how much memory is being used by going into your task manager.

Hi I am currently running Win 7 64 bit on an Acer Aspire netbook and I have noticed the past couple of weeks that the icons on my desktop keep momentarily refreshing themselves every time I click on one of them to use (occasionally without clicking).

I have scanned with Malwarebytes,Superantispyware,SpyBot search & destroy,ESET online scanner,TDDS Killer and Microsoft Security Essentials (full scan) but haven't found anything.

Does anyone know if this issue is caused by possible malware infection or it is normal/windows error as I've read many conflicting things about this around the net?.

Any info/help on this and how it may be able to get solved would be most appreciated thanks.

Select a Restore Point with a date just prior to when you first noticed this behavior.
Click the Next Button and follow the instructions to restore the system to that date and time.

How long did you leave it at 5%?

I just did a refresh yesterday, and it did hang on 5% for a while (maybe 10-15 minutes), so be patient.

Hi. I'm experiencing some weird stuff. This is my second installations of windows 7 build 7000. The first was cracked, and now this is a genuine beta. In both i have the same problem:
Sometimes let's suppose i'm extracting files from winrar, when it finishes, nothing shows on desktop. If i click refresh, then my stuff shows up. 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

A:Refreshing desktop

I get the same thing from time to time, I would say it's worth sending some feedback to Microsoft about it, hopefully it will be resolved by the final release or even better with an Update.
