Mirec - I appreciate that English is probably not your first language, but I am not able to understand your problem enough to be able to provide help. Can you perhaps get some help editing your question to make it clearer? You may want to try an online translation tool – stuffe Feb 7 '12 at 16:23
This question was originally posted to Slovak apple-related forum at Basically his problem is that while he writes an email or views PDF, his cursor is flashing. He had his computer serviced, but no problem was found and he is now trying to diagnose the flashing issue. Someone suggested recording a video with QuickTime Player, but flashing didn't occur while recording. Last message in the forum suggests that he found the source of the problem: Unofficial package for slovak spellchecking. (It's bit confusing even in original) – Peter Štibraný Feb 7 '12 at 19:25
