I removed HJT log since we don't use them in this specific forum area.
You have provided no specs on your system for us to work with. :)
Laptop or desktop?
Name brand and if so what brand, make and model?
Custom build then what brand make and model of motherboard?
What make and model is monitor?
Have you tried booting into Safe Mode and see if it happens there?

OK the first thing to check is the monitor itself for a problem.
Do you have another system desktop or laptop you could plug the monitor into just to check the monitor itself?

Next I would like you to do the following.

It seems worse in windows live mail. Windows live slow to click anything. Sometimes a part black screen. The flashing does not change any colour when browsing or trying emails. It just flashes randomly - more like a blink. It blinks quite fast at times and other thimes it blinks for say 10 times then stabilises. Windows live does appear to be the worst as it is difficult to close down inbeteen flashing. I will now try what you suggested. Thanks

Also if you would please do the following.

Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.

OK. The only files that I had to delete were Internet Explorer and TFsExDisk. Now I cannot seem to upload as attachment the file that I saved to desktop. Windows isn't recognising this ARN file.

You need to save the log as a txt file format as the ARN will not attach to your post.
