Hello!
 

My laptop was recently upgraded to Windows 10 Creators Update V1703 (15063.296). Ever since the first reboot, the desktop and taskbar refresh continuously and I can't get anything done. I can bring up Task Manager with Ctrl-Alt-Del, and start a program with Create New Task, but I have not been able to stop the refresh. I have seen a few posts with a similar problem, but they're from a couple of years ago and haven't helped.

 

What triggers Windows Explorer to refresh the desktop? Is there something in the registry I can look for?

 

The hardware is an HP Elitebook 8560w (Intel Core i7-2630QM) with two SSD 240GB drives and 24GB memory. The previous version of Windows 10 worked fine with no complaints.

 

I would appreciate any tips or suggestions.

 

Regards,

Thank you, yes, the suggestion in the thread to uninstall the IDT Audio codecs via Control Panel stopped the out-of-control desktop and taskbar refresh after a reboot. The refresh was actually the desktop explorer.exe crashing and restarting.

 

I don't yet understand the reason behind it or what impact it will have on the system. I still see a "High Definition Audio Device" in the Device Manager and the audio on the laptop appears to be working fine.
