Group policy updates causes screen to flicker

Last Modified: 2012-05-09

For a long time now users screen flicker a random intervals throughtoit the day.  I tested the cause and found that when running gpupdate /force the screen flickers for several seconds this is across all hp desktops.  The flickering lasts for upto five seconds in flashes of White every time a gp refresh is done or I manually run gpupdate.  I have played around with changing the wallpaper etc but no luck has anyone else experienced this before or found a solution?

Thanks in advance
