Windows 10 Pro, build 1803, screen blinking after microsoft ID account login - multiple computers

Recently the screens started flashing on my primary computer.  In task manager, I could see windows explorer going into suspend mode and then back to normal.  Happens a little faster than once per second.  System entirely unresponsive except in safe mode (where it works fine)

After numerous attempts following all the suggestions on this site, I bought another mini pc and installed windows on it.  Shortly after, it started to blink.  I went to another computer in my home and logged in (using my microsoft account) and after a while it started to blink.

I've isolated the problem to my microsoft id.  With any other account it all works fine (all 3 computers).  Because the problem starts on any computer I log in to, I don't believe there is anything wrong with my computer, but rather something attached to my profile in my microsoft ID that loads when I log in.

I'd rather not create a new id and reinstall every program on every computer I own - so is there away to cleanup the information (corruption?) associated with a microsoft ID?
