    Does anyone know how to stop this. When viewing my desktop, the icons flicker. When I run NetBeans, that program flickers. I don't know if these two things correlate. I dont think my PC is too weak. I have a P4 2.8 GHZ, 80 GB HD, 256 MB DDR.

    Need any additional information to help me?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like your refresh rate has gotten screwed up somehow. Try setting it as high as your monitor can handle. Right click on the desktop, click properties, click settings, click advanced, click the monitor tab and see if you can set the refresh higher, like 75hz/85hz/90hz.
