Hi Thomas,

Almost everytime I am playing while I am online and when someone signs in with MSN Messenger, Pretty Good Solitire flickers. It goes away almost immediately too.

Hi Diana,

I would guess that MSN Messenger must be in a small window on top of the game and for some reason it is telling Windows several times that the screen must be updated, which can cause flickering in Pretty Good Solitaire. There's not much to be done about that if that is the case, PGS has to update the screen if Windows tells it to, but it should only do it once (unfortunately, some applications that run always on top force updates repeatedly).
