Windows 7: win7pro 64bit- desktop/taskbar icons refresh/flash when....

win7pro 64bit- desktop/taskbar icons refresh/flash when....


Hope this is in the correct section. When I open word starter 2010, excel starter 2010, or even save a web page to my favorites in ie9 my desktop icons and task bar will go white and back to normal like a refresh or something. It happens on my desktop and laptop, both have windows 7 pro, one is 64bit and other 32bit, all updates performed. It has been something i have ignored since i dont do those tasks daily but recently i have and its getting annoying now, whats funny is the white/refresh period seems to take longer on my intel 2500k desktop vs the amd athlon neo netbook. Since it occurs on both systems i dont think its a gpu driver issue, besides the desktop one has had different drivers on the gtx570 with no change.

Thanks and I can provide more info if needed
