    When you sudo you have to authenticate also, in Finder, just select all the files cited using the the command key and you'll only have to authenticate once.

    And if you're going to do the script don't forget that the .kexts are folders, or at least update the article.

    Also, commands that involve 'sudo rm -rf' shouldn't be copy pasted, a bad selection can be too dangerous.

    I usually get it while running Forte Agent in coherence mode.

    The flicker doesn't seem to be anything the program knows about, but is a flip back and forth between two images. I actually can work if I can guess which of the two images is the current one. But I quit out and restart Parallels instead. Every time except once that did the trick.

    I have the flicker and I run in coherence mode.

    I have had this running Forte Agent. The flicker seems to be between the "real" screen and the previous image. I believe the swap only swaps the image, and nothing really changes behind the scenes. I close down my apps, close down Parallels, and restart. Only once has this failed to clear the problem.

    I started to see this flicker every once in a while on my MacBook Pro. It started just a couple of days ago. I've been running PD 5600 on 10.5.3 since the update came out and nothing like this has happened before. Could it be an issue with a Windows update? If this were happening on a windows PC, I'd suspect maybe corrupted drivers or something like that.

    It's not a Windows problem (it doesn't happen in Boot Camp for instance).

    In my case it happened right after I installed OS X 10.5.3 update. Before the update, Windows XP VM did not have any flicker problem.
    It is a big hassle to me to remove OS update and test my case.
    So I am awaiting your solution.

    The 'solution' is to download (and install) the latest Parallels release (build 5608).

    fast screen flickering

    does the update fix the problem?
    we are running parallels on a new imac 24" with winxp pro. when i start quickbooks anything within the vm becomes almost impossible to use. rapid flickering. this just started occurring in the past week or so and the accountant is having to work in bootcamp (obviously working fine) in order to get her work done.
