Windows 7/desktop icons


I have a Windows 7 desktop computer.  I took it in to get fixed as the fan was making noise (it was replaced)and it had another issue. He took out Incredimail and put in Windows Live as he thought it Icredimail was causing the problem. The problem,,,my desktop icons quiver and flash, maybe come on and then go off. THe computer guy in the shop could not find anything wrong,,,when it was there. It is still not right.

There's really not much I can do to help you with this from here. Without seeing your computer, I really can't tell what the problem is. It could be anything from a bad video cable connection to a video card driver that needs an update. I've seen just about everything you can think of cause problems like this. I'd recommend finding a DIFFERENT, credible, local computer repair shop.
