Icons will not stop flashing on our Servers

Our servers icons blink randomly and frequently.

All of the servers are windows 2016. It's happening to 3 servers.

The servers are setup as terminal servers for the users to come in on a VPN and connect.

We have tried quite a few things to get this to stop but with no luck.

Let me know if you want more information

Thank you,

Check for any virus activity.
Otherwise reset IE settings.
Update graphics card driver.
Rebuild Icon cache and clear Thumbnail cache. HERE
Run DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
Run sfc/scannow
Try clean boot. If all icons will be ok, it's service/3rd party software issue...
