My friend had just upgraded to Windows 7 and when she opens more than 3 programs (when there is more than 3 programs opened in the taskbar) , the screen starts flashing.

I dont think she did that tweak that speed up the shutdown process.

To solve the screen flashing and not responding error in windows 7, go to start, type regedit in the search line and press Enter. Once the registry editor is opened, find these registry keys and delete them.

* HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\HungAppTimeOut
* HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\WaitToKillAppTimeOut
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\HungAppTimeOut
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WaitToKillAppTimeOut
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WaitToKillServiceTimeOut


Once all these keys are deleted, Screen flashing will be solved in your computer.


Should I still do the above method ?

I don't think these registry tweaks that make shutdown faster have any relevance to the screen flashing (I use them myself). If I were you, I would go the "Am I Infected? What do I do?" sub-forum and check for malware first.

Then if you're declared clean, come back here to fight with the os itself (if malware was not the issue).

A weird fix O_o

I added to the registery that tweak which speeds up the shutdown process and now the flashing is not happening. Usually that tweak result in the problem, but it fixed it xD
