All my icons, both in Explorer and on the desktop, keep flashing (refreshing?). This only happens when Explorer is open, and only started a few days ago. I'm right up to date with virus checker etc. Any ideas?
Not sure if you mean your icons are flashing in position or flashing and moving around. If latter check out - [email protected]" title="http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/[email protected]" TARGET="_new">click here
I am running Windows XP SP2, Quick Heal visur protection, Zone Alarm firewall, plus Spybot, Adaware and PestPatrol.
The icons are just 'flashing', not moving. It only happens when I open Explorer, and only then when I go to My Computer. On about a half second interval, the icons keep appearing to refresh.
I have tried crx1600's registry fix, but to no avail. All I have done lately is installed SP2 (but that was a couple of weeks ago and this only just started hapening)and installing BT Broadband over the last few days.
Fraid not - but thanks for the suggestion. Strangely, I find that using 2xExplorer instead of Windows Explorer eliminates the flashing, although it doesn't solve the underlying problem. Its irritating, but I'm working around it.
Thanks again JaßîsFaß. Unfortunately, same again regarding the max cache size - I've now set it to 2048 but still no change. I would have thought it significant that this only happens when I click on My Computer in Explorer. if I click on anything else, there's no problem. If I use 2x Explorer, no problem. What could be so different about clicking on My Computer?
