Onecare causes my other office programs to flash and blink. RRS feed

  • Question


    My Outlook inbox was flashing and blinking as well as Excel, Publisher and Word.  I uninstalled Onecare and the flashing and blinking stopped.  I re-installed and the falshing and blinking resumed.  How can I fix this?  I would prefer to stay with Oncecare but will switch to another utility if I cannot get it fixed.

    I have never heard of this problem related to OneCare. Typically, when a program is flashing in the Task bar, it means that it requires attention as it is in the background and another program is working in the foreground. That doesn't seem to be what you are describing, though. I recommend that you contact support to determine what may be causing the problem - perhaps a conflict between OneCare and other software on the PC, not actually Office applications, but something that is causing the behavior you are encountering.
