    Microsoft Confirms Desktop Screen Flashes Bug in Windows 10


    Microsoft Confirms Desktop Screen Flashes Bug in Windows 10, Offers Fix

    One of the many bugs found in Windows 10 is causing the desktop screen to flicker on and off and without an official workaround for Microsoft, users have tried nearly everything, especially because on some devices, this problem makes the OS impossible to use.

    While it's not yet clear how widespread this issue actually is, Microsoft today offered a workaround for the bug, explaining that most often it's caused by third-party software that aren't fully compatible with Windows 10 (this is one of the reasons many computers didn't get Windows 10 in the first place, but it appears that solving compatibility issues takes more time than initially thought).

    “We have received reports of this happening with some third-party software products that cause Explorer.exe to crash repeatedly,” Microsoft briefly stated.

    Right now, Microsoft says that screen flickering is happening on Windows 10's desktop because one of these three apps: Norton Antivirus or other antivirus solution, iCloud, and IDT Audio.

    A simple fix-Don't use Norton. I use Avast AIS and my screen does not flicker.

    I wonder how many of those who have been adversely affected by the W10 transition received this little gem?

    Is that image from the released version of Win10 [7/29/2015] or with the date of 7/8/2015 from one of the Preview versions?

    Ditto, same here too.

    I didn't notice it with the upgrade but I did a clean install over the weekend and now notice the flickering...I have Norton Security with Win 10 Pro.
