Client Weird Error

Been running the same load of programs simultaneously for weeks at a time until last night, where my computer installed updates and rebooted by itself. Now my diablo client does this, see vid.

Program Not Responding keeps flickering in a fraction of a second.

Tried reinstalling, deleting Battle.net and Blizzard Entertainment Program Data files but still no luck.

Any ideas?

+vid captures the taskbar only since I run Diablo on windowed mode
+Diablo window keeps showing 'not responding' then disappear and reappears in an instant

It is fairly obvious that something in the update to your PC is affecting your ability to play. Have you tried selective startup mode to see if another software item is interfering? https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/shutting-down-background-applications

check the Event Viewer for anything that may be relevant

edit:
also you can always undo the update by using the restore point to go back before it.

Did a system restore but had no luck.
Did try troubleshooting which system services were faulty but still no luck

However, I did some tinkering with d3prefs.txt and also adjusted the video resolution -now it seem to work.

There's no definite fix that I have found. If I reboot(rarely without being forced), exit client, or logout user, or shuffle through programs(alt-tab) this thing happens.
