Hi there. Whenever I try to access (by highlighting or clicking on) video
files (mpeg, avi etc) in Windows explorer my computer screen flashes 5-6
times before the video file starts. It's annoying.. I've checked for viruses
or spyware but found nothing.. any ideas what the problem is ?

many thanks in advance

best guess, a new video card driver might help.
it could just be the machine pausing while the file loads to cache.

Depends. Run this edit in the meantime, no harm will be done.
