Hi I am currently running Win 7 64 bit on an Acer Aspire netbook and I have noticed the past couple of weeks that the icons on my desktop keep momentarily refreshing themselves every time I click on one of them to use (occasionally without clicking).

I have scanned with Malwarebytes,Superantispyware,SpyBot search & destroy,ESET online scanner,TDDS Killer and Microsoft Security Essentials (full scan) but haven't found anything.

Does anyone know if this issue is caused by possible malware infection or it is normal/windows error as I've read many conflicting things about this around the net?.

Any info/help on this and how it may be able to get solved would be most appreciated thanks.

In Control Panel, (icon view) select 'Troubleshooting'. Under Appearance and Personalization, select the Display Aero desktop effects.

In the resulting window, select the Advanced link at the bottom of the window and place a check mark in the Apply repairs automatically option.

Click the Next Button.

If the troubleshooter does not find any problems, select the Explore additional options button.

Select the Recovery Link.
Click the System Restore button.
Click the Next Button.

Select a Restore Point with a date just prior to when you first noticed this behavior.
Click the Next Button and follow the instructions to restore the system to that date and time.
