Default Find and Replace: Flashing Rectangles-- Word 2003

When I bring up the search and replace dialog box, I get quick flashing
rectangular lines that flash only briefly. The same happens when I cancel the
box. They come up and down from the bottom of the screen with the dialog box.
Any idea on how to stop them??

I'm guessing at what you're seeing, but try this: Go to Tools
Options General and uncheck "Provide feedback with animation".

Word 2003 particularly has a bad habit of randomly changing such options.
Some have blamed the influence of add-ins but I am not convinced this is the
issue. If you have a particular setting (or settings) that change for your
installation. You can force the required settings with autoopen and autonew
macros in the normal template, to ensure the settings you require are
correct for each document. - see http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm
