    After installing windows 10, desktop has no icons and flashes


    I'm unable to do anything. During the download, everything seemed fine. It started to install apps. It then said "This is taking longer then usual, it should finish soon". I stepped out for about 10 minutes, came back and desktop was flashing with no icons. I'm unable to do anything.

    Try restarting, maybe? That usually fixes problems like this.
