    Hi,


    Does anyone know how to fix the issue where games keep flashing back to the desktop after they are launched or running? They still run but cycle back and forth on each click.


    Thanks,

    J

    Double checking, but I don't think there are any updates left. Is there a specific KB I should be looking for? No, there isn't an update at the moment.

    Thanks again for the quick reply.

    Yeah,

    It's something that got stuck with the upgrade from the GTA game ready driver to the WHQL Windows 10 driver. I had to run the Display Driver Uninstaller tool from another site to rip it out. Once that happened, I reinstalled and it's now working without issue.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I disabled the start menu by striping searchui.exe of all permissions lol

    put a folder on my desktop pointing to start menu items, and honestly... I prefer this over the crap M$ has been pushing out lately

    Ive tried everything I could think of, new drivers old drivers, seems 10074 is really btoken. Seems to be something to do with the start menu. Even trying to wake up from a sleep state is fkd and needs rebooting.
