I think there is something seriously wrong with my computer. Most of the time the icons on my desktop keeps refreshing, when I try to view My Computer all the folders and stuff in there keeps refreshing and when I go online everything keeps refreshing and it's impossible to navigate(on my roommates' computer right now). I don't know if this will help or not, but when i go into excel it doesn;t refresh, the Go To window keeps popping up though. Even in safe mode I still experience the flashing effect but it comes in spurts. Please Help.
Thanks.

Please describe your computer OS, keyboard, mouse. How old is the computer? When the refreshing happens does it just flicker or actually refresh the page you are viewing? Sounds like it could be a hardware problem. Video card going bad or sticking keys or dirty mouse. Have you checked the event viewer?

I have a HP laptop running Windows XP and I got it about a year ago. I'm pretty confident that it is not a keyboard or mouse problem because when my computer acts normally, I can type and do everything normally. When my computer acts up when I try to use a desktop icon, all the icons flicker like the desktop is being refreshed. They stop usually when I hit that start menu. When I'm browsing the internet, the page will actually refresh and it refreshes so quick that I'm not able to navigate at all. When I go into safe mode to run some virus scans, this problem still occurs there also.
