ICONS KEEP FLASHING

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?

What version of Windows are you using? Have you changed and settings or loaded any new programs lately?

if it's XP, there is a reg tweak;

Window Refresh - Automatically

Folders blink and/or icons flash, run the edit here on line 157: 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.

I'd be grateful for any more ideas.

Any help?

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.

Try increasing the size of the icon cache click here

I increased the icon cache size to 2000, but still no change.
