    Question Flickering video under Windows 10 (BUT is it truly SOLVED???)

    I seemed to have solved this, but not totally happy with the solution.

    My original Windows 10 upgrade from Win 7 went fine. (not sure when, but more than a month ago). Then, about a week ago (start of Dec 2015) my primary monitor started to flicker. I have a graphics card that uses NVIDIA drivers, and I run dual monitors. Only the primary monitor (ViewSonic VA2431wm) flickered. The older Acer 19 inch did not.

    I made sure all drivers were up to date. Still flickered.

    I found a reference suggesting that Norton AV might be a problem. I followed instructions by uninstalling and re-installing Norton. There were several other steps (I forget exactly what!). Flicker stopped. YEAH!

    Last night (Dec 9) my machine did another Win 10 update. Flicker came back. I uninstalled Norton. Period. Flicker stopped.

    I then happened to notice that ALL the available built in security options in Windows had been turned on. I have no idea when this happened. I had them off as I depended on Norton for those services.

    Perhaps Norton and Windows 10's security features clashed.

    Any comments? Should I just stay with Windows security services and save the money from Norton upgrades?

    thank you

    A proper uninstallation will automatically re-enable Windows security that was disabled when the third party software was installed. That is designed behavior.
