I used Avast Driver Updater, confirmed the 2 drivers needing updating. I don’t recall which drivers they were. Now I have an issue. I can see the screen to enter my login pin. After entering, my Windows 10 screen with app shortcuts appear but the screen begins to quickly flash. Avast Anti Tracker app may open, with the screen flashing behind it. I have opened Task Manager but there isn’t an active process to end other than Task Manager. I don’t know enough to choose the correct background process to “mess” with. Need help!

Hi
Did you solve this problem?

UPD: Google says to replace unidrv.dll library, it helped
