My computer keeps flashing on and off. If I am in the middle of using File Explorer or look for something, it flashes and I have to start all over again.

wrong forum, this is the workstation/busnieness forum
you have a Desktop All In One please post your question in that forum
you might also want to edit your post to include the Model of your AIO as your current post description is rather incomplete
a better listing would look like this :
HP Pavilion All-in-One - 27-a027c (Touch)
Desktop video display and touch, Forum link:

It’s not a monitor issue. It an HP 27 all in one hardware issue. The system keeps refreshing on it’s own every 30 seconds or so. It will not let anything install! Every time it refreshes, it “blinks”. This started last week on Sunday when I installed the HP update that I received to improve my performance. Grrr!

The computer would not allow the restore. I had to to a complete Windows 10 install. This wiped out all my programs! My data is still there, but I can’t use them because I have no software applications to open them. I reinstalled the printer, but still cannot get the printer’s HP fax feature (which is part of the all-in-one feature that came with the printer) to install. I was told to call support for assistance, BUT they will want to charge me for this because the printer is out warranty. Why should I have to pay for something that HP caused? I’ve already paid for this 100 times over with stress & time spent & still need to spend, getting my computer fully working again. Thanks HP for the bad update that corruption all my registry files & caused all my problems! Computer was working perfectly until I did the update that I was sent telling me it would improve the performance of my device. GRRRR!

since i can't see your system and have no experence with it there is no way for me to say what caused your problems, however,..........
your not really going to want to hear this, but i've been in the "IT" fileld for over 15 years and know first hand that most people blame the Hardware or the software, when it's usually the human factor causing the problems, and this is normal since most people simply assume that the last update or whatever was the cause, when it most likely was not
either way, simply take a deep breath relax and try resolving the remaining issues.... in the long run it really dosent matter who or what caused the problem, what matters is fixing it so you can use it again
ok, you did a OS restore that reinstalled the operating system but left your documents and data folders intact, correct?
how did you install the applications the first time, and why is reinstalling said apps not possible now?
if you tell us which HP AIO printer model you have, we might be able to help you with the fax issue
