  1. Windows 10 - white box rapidly flashes on screen


    Since the Windows 10 update last Thursday my Dell has developed an issue with a white square that rapidly flashes up on my screen, repeatedly but randomly. It can flash quickly in rapid succession, or just once. It can be seconds apart, or considerable minutes apart.

    Often it seems to be a blank white square with a black top and left hand edge, other times it appears to be a smaller image of the page/document I am working on. I think perhaps i might have also seen a broken image link on it once.


    Its so fast, you cannot screen print it, and its hard to say exactly what it is.


    I have done all the usual things, I took off the update, but it still happened, the update has gone back on but my flashing friend is still here. I have done CMD scannow and clean up image. I have googled it, and it appears to have been an issued going back to 2017.

    I have checked triggers and nothing seems to be in any triggers.


    Its driving me nuts. When it flashes it stops the character you were typing and sometimes it even changes the window you were working on, and you find yourself typing in a different programme. I have tried opening Task Manager to see if anything obvious flashes up, but the list is so long, you dont have time to see the entire list before its flashed off again!


    All I can say is it started immediately after the update on Thursday May 14th 2020.


    I would be grateful for any suggestions to try.

    :)
