Pyro! Causes MS-DOS Shell to Blink (76089)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0

This article was previously published under Q76089


When using Pyro!, a screen saver from Fifth Generation Systems, the Microsoft MS-DOS version 5.0 Shell screen will blink after Pyro! has been activated.


When the Pyro! screen saver is invoked, Shell will blink after the screen saver has been used. This occurs when you press any key to return to normal operations after the screen saver has been activated.

Task switching to another application and then going back to Shell will stop the screen from blinking. Re-expanding the DOSSHELL.VID file has no effect on this reaction.
