    Hint: Providing some details generally helps.

  3. Well, I really don't have any details to give. I'm talking about the
    file explore that comes with windows and sometimes, for reasons I do
    not know, the icons and the directory and file names start to blink.
    I'm not sure what I did to cause it because it's only been doing it in
    the last month or so. I was hoping it was a common experience and
    someone would know.

    First, please quote who you are talking to and what they said.

    Second - you gave no details - Windows Operating system? XP Home? XP
    Pro? 98? 95? 2000? NT? And anything else you think might be relevant.

    Think of going into a Automobile group and saying "My car stutters
    sometimes." If someone asked you for details, what would come to mind?

    Only in certain directories? In every directory? All the time?
