I've been having this issue for a few days. I tried contacting Microsoft, but I think we all know how that usually goes. So I came here hoping for answers. So basically all the icons on my start menu are flickering and respond slowly. My CPU is sitting at a normal temp and percentage, same with my HDD and my ram. So I don't think it's a hardware issue. Below I'll link a video that illustrates my problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated, because this goes past my technical know-how.

Please post the make and model of this computer.


Boot into Safe Mode and see if this problem persists there.


To boot into Safe Mode do the following.


You will need to use an Administrator account to for this.
Press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the R key together.  In the menu that opens select Search.  When the Search charm opens type in msconfig.
msconfig will appear below the search box, click/tap on it.
When System Configuration opens click/tap on the Boot tab.
Under Boot options click/tap on Safe boot, then click/tap on Apply, then OK.
The next time you start the computer it will boot into Safe Mode.
Please note.  You computer will continue to boot into Safe Mode when it is started until you go back to System Configuration and remove the check in Safe boot.
