Default [Help] Taskbar Flickering while running desktopX theme

Hey, so before i say what my problem is my computer specs are windows 2000 sp4, 1 gig ram, Amd 3500+ (2.2 ghz), and nivida 6800 gs.

Ok now the problem is that after i installed desktop x 3.1 pro and then i choose the theme that i want, for some reason every 2-3 seconds my original taskbar flickers. I also tried with about 7 other themes for desktop x. And it still does that. any fixes for the annoying taskbar?

Default Re: [Help] With DesktopX themes

What type of monitor do you have? The whole screen flicker at all?

Try setting the refresh rate a little higher, or a little lower, just try messing with it.

Or maybe reinstalling 3.1, or downgrading to see if it still does it.

Obviously try the refresh rate first, not too high though!

EDIT: How to change refresh rate.

A. Right click on desktop, go to properties.

B. Go to settings, then advanced.

C. Click on the monitor tab, then you will see the refresh rate option.
