Last night our computer, when restarted, it stood blinking all the time no access to desktop or apps.  Tried restarting windows explorer from task mananger, disabling all startup apps, some services to no avail (still blinks constantly).  If we run in safe mode there is no blinking and windows Explorer opens - all seems normal.

One of the main culprit we were googling  seems to be display driver, we deleted the display driver and reinstall but windows only installed a Microsoft generic display adapter, not the HP drivers that came with it.

What can we do to fix this?
(note we did notice, that a user clicked  bulkfilechanger (from nirsoft) and comodo security detected it and ran it in “containment”.  After closing the apps, the user could not left-click anything to run and a message kept appearing which didn’t right down - after restart the computer started blinking).

We have windows 10 pro & latest update.
