    KB2836988 problem

    Above update installed and when system restarted, the start screen started to flash every 4 seconds. I could see the desktop behind the flash. When I clicked on the desktop tile, I got a cursor hour glass for about 5 seconds and then the desktop icons slowly appeared along with taskbar icons. Everything works fine when on the desktop but when I return to the start screen, the flashing starts again. I uninstalled the update and the flashing stopped. Anyone else have a problem with this update?

    I have installed that update but I did not experience your kind of problem.

    Try to download the update again and install it. See if that problem occurs
