  1. Windows 10 Desktop keeps refreshing constantly every 6 secs


    prior to this it was working fine no constant screen refresh or anything. I had my charger in the port charging my laptop it slipped out half way not charging the laptop, the laptop shutdown and when I went to reboot all was normal logged in and the desktop would normally refresh once then stop but now its doing it constantly every 6 secs. I have updated my display drivers uninstalled them, I have update my firmware. I have uninstalled bitdefender, adobe everything. I did go into task manager and stop the Microsoft search something??? when I did that it stopped until it started up again. but then I killed the task and it continued I am about to go buy another pc if this don't stop this is pissing me off. hope anyone can help me I haven't tried to reinstall windows as I am worried it wont help. thank for your time

    :)

    Desktop constantly refreshing


    Hi, some ideas here:
    Windows 10 Taskbar and Desktop Constantly Refreshing - Microsoft Community
    BEST FIX: Stop Windows 10 Taskbar and Desktop Refreshing - Appuals.com

    Another observation:
    Windows 10 Desktop Constant Refresh: how can I stop the constant refreshing? - Windows Central Forums
    ...had the constant refresh problem
    Fixed it thus: First switching off WiFi, then right click on start button, select the shutdown sign off and select shutdown
    Then boot pc as normal - leave to do all its stuff - suggest about a couple of minutes - switch wifi back on and all was as it should be.

    Another:
    Uninstall IDT Audio (if installed).

    System Restore can be unreliable. Restore now doesn't work for me with a particular message which has rarely been reported.

    Having read the above, if no help, then basics:
    a. Does it happen in Safe Mode?
    b. Does it happen after a clean boot?

    Desktop and Toolbar constantly refreshing


    Hi.
    had a same problem with fresh upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Windows desktop and explorer keeps constantly refreshing every 40-60 seconds.
    Solved.
    My problem was in High Definition audio drivers. Error was cousing file RTSndMgr.cpl.
    Unninstal drivers and restart windows 10. Win 10 then innstals auto drivers for your sound and thats it. Event wiever did not report any errors.
