I don't know how common this problem is with anyone else, but for the last couple of weeks I've had this thing where my desktop icons occasionally flash/refresh. I'm not sure what the cause may be, I've tried switching live search off/to manual but it didn't work as I hoped. I feel like the solution might be to just reinstall windows. I've given my ssds an optimisation and there's still enough space on them, and all virus/malware scans come up clean. Maybe there's a bottleneck formed somewhere but I wouldn't know where to begin on that. As long as the flashing isn't a serious problem I'll live it for a little longer before I do something else about it. As always any suggestion will be considered and appreciated.
