Stephen Swaney (stiv) changed the status of T91010: irritating flickering in edit mode from Needs Triage to Needs Information from User.

Sounds like a video driver issue.
1st step is to update your video driver, preferably from the card manufacturer's website.

Stephen Swaney (stiv) changed the status of T90918: Keyword Action Unrecognized from Needs Triage to Needs Information from User.

Does the problem go away if you run Blender from the command line with the
--factory-startup flag?
If so, one of your add-ons is breaking things.

See in console that frame changes faster than the timer can finish its execution. I would expect the timer finish its job before Blender can move to a next frame.

It looks like your blowing up in wintab32.dll . A bit of googling says that is Wacom software. The *32 part is interesting since we are generally in a 64 bit world, but the 32 might just be a historical artifact.

ntdll.dll is fundamental part of your operating system. Lots of things crashing there make me suspect either a broken operating system install or a hard drive going bad.

Likely a video driver problem.
Updated video driver is usually a good idea. Preferably from the card manufacturer's site.
