Hi Guys,

I have discovered what was the problem.

It was Mailwasher Pro that was causing the blink.

Mailwasher was trying to connect to my server and had the wrong password, and since it gives the advice it blinks and play a sound. I had put the checking function to my server every 2 minutes!

It is queer and unexplainable that my whole screen would blink while I was using it for a Google search.

I had to look under Thre 'Recycle Bin' to discover what was the error that it was giving!

So the problem is solved.

If anyone has the same problem - one should check Mailwasher error log.
