    That's a windows 10 task bar and start button on the bottom for sure. Click on then start button should be different start menu.

    Hi john55. Try right click on the start button and open commend promp as administrator, type sfc /scannow and hit enter. This will check your system files are all ok and fix any problems it finds. I usually do this after an install and usually puts right.

    I would;
    1. restart the system
    2. turn defender off and Avast back on
    3. restart again and set your clock... is this machine getting on a bit, your motherboard may need a new battery?

    Good luck with it mate.

    My desktop looks like John55, with a image of a window with light shinning thru it, except my screen keeps flashing on and off constantly. Has done this for at least 1 1/2 hours. I finally turned off and restarted. Still doing the same thing. Now what? Can I back out or what are my options? Thanks
