I am restoring OSX now. It says 7 hours remaining. Will email results tomorrow.
I restored OSX and still have the blinking on the active screen.
I followed your instructions and am running in safe mode, the blinking has stopped.
yes, I followed the safe mode start-up instructions and logged in as original user that has been blinking.
example: if I have 3 windows on at the same time (mail, a Word file and internet) as I click from one window to the other, only the active window blinks, not the whole screen. If I open the Help Window and search a subject the window will close before I get the subject typed in. Any pull downs from Menu Bar will only last 10 seconds, so if I cannot make up my mind on the selection within 10 seconds, the pulldown closes.
I only have the one monitor (Desktop iMac)

Just about done. After restore files I cannot get calendar link between my desktop and laptop/smartphone to connect with each other. Everything else is ok
A local computer service came to my house a month or so ago and linked up my smart phone, laptop and desk computer so that I could see scheduled activities on any of the devices. I have accounts on the computers for iCal on Yahoo mail, calendar and email and Google.calendar simply for the calendar app. Currently when I create an event on my smartphone it shows on my ical on laptop and desk model. but when I enter an ical activity on my laptop calendar or desk model it stays on individual calendar and does not link.
