I remembered that I had same problem back when my 5800 Ultra was in and my system was new back in March of this year.
It was the SYSTEM RESTORE feature in Windows XP...
I'm sorry if it doesn't work for everyone but it worked both times for me like a charm...
You can also turn off INDEXING on the drives also, but you must do a defrag once you disable these, because it opens up space and fragments the hell out of the drive.
Dude, we aren't talking about stuttering problems in this thread, we're talking about some people getting flickering on their screen.
