    Hello,
    I had a very important question. Lets say (as an example)I am on Yahoo
    Messenger and I leave a conversation idle and the person is still talking to
    me, the window blinks when it is minimized in the Taskbar...how do I turn off
    the setting that makes the conversation to blink because I do not want that
    anymore.
    Thank you so much!

    "Had"? How about "have" (as in THIS thread)?

    Nope, when minimalized there is no window. They may be a button in the
    Windows taskbar. The taskbar button is what blinks.

    Rather than hunt down the registry setting, just get the TweakUI
    powertoy for Windows XP. Then go to the following node to configure the
    blinking behavior:

    General -> Focus
