All right. Heres the deal, and I would be amazed if anyone is able to figure this one out.
On my computer, if you right click any .exe or .lnk file the desktop will refresh (Screen blinks, background refreshes and anything in the taskbar disappears). Also, if I try to delete any .lnk or .exe files by simply pressing the delete button (while the executable is highlighted), the screen will also refresh. And if I highlight a .exe or .lnk file while im in windows Explorer and try to access the File tab at the top of Explorer, it will also refresh the desktop. My computer also freezes after 5 mins, but bringing up the task manager un-freezes it.
I have tried System Restore and it says I am unable to restore back.
I tried searching for the answer on google of course, and I came up with one similar problem.
he said this though
I have upgraded the drivers for my FX5950 to the last official Nvidia 56.72.
Now I have got a strange problem: When I right click on a video media file (but not an audio file), the screen blinks and refreshes before showing the context menu. The same thing happens when I delete this type of files using the "delete key.
Quite annoying, especially because my monitor is a trinitron multiscan G200 and its refreshing act is quite violent (it makes a big SHKLAK!!! sound every time).
Anyone knows about this problem?
As you can see, he is having the same problem as me but his related to media files.
Later on, he posts that when he re-installed his old nVidia drivers it fixed everything.
I tried what he said to do, and it didn’t work out for me…can anyone help me?
