Are there any windows system settings you've changed? Did you change the default color scheme in windows? Since you are able to reproduce this with a default config with nothing going on, there is definitely something different about your software or hardware.

I havent changed any off the default settings for windows and only change SE because its the only editor which comes to close to getting all the colours right on a black background.
Find attached 2 files showing the programs installed on each PC.

The problem is caused by
C:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPoint\SetPoint.exe
Which is for the Logitech range off mice. Both off my PC's have "Performance MX" mice.
Stopping this program removes the problem. I have updated to the latest versions.
The question are
   1) Is Slickedit not processing a standard message correctly.
I Ask this because I have no other issues with any other programs. Also Disabling the program stops at least one off the extra mouse buttons from working. This one uses a graphical methods off tasks switching which looks like something that appeared in windows vista/7.
   2) Is the SetPoint program generating spurious messages.
Unfortunately I don’t have any way of getting a windows message trace so I cant tell what is being sent.

If you required any help to identify the problem give me a shout

Thanks for this hopefully very helpful information. I'll test this.

Another problem which is cause by the set point driver is this:

I still haven't reproduce this blinking problem yet.

It appears to be unrelated to the drag/drop issue with the SetPoint driver. The drag/drop problem is very odd and may be a Windows OS bug having something to do with using SetWindowHookEx(qJournalRecordProc,...). I'm guessing both the SetPoint driver and Qt use this which should theoretically be OK but it's not. Qt ONLY uses this hook while the mouse is grabbed (captured). In this screen blink case, the mouse isn't captured. Like I said, it's an unrelated problem.
