Running Windows 7, Studio One Professional V2.  I do NOT have automatic software updates on.   I am getting a flickering screen when trying to edit or double click on an insert to change it or modify it.   As it's constantly flickering I am able to get the mouse to click on the TOP Right X to close the window.   Problem is if there is a Studio One upgrade that I need to do, I am worried as I am simply ordering up my masters of songs to an album which will be sent out to be duplicated end of this week.   Yes, bad timing for this... A workaround would be appreciated!  Thank you!

----THE FIX----

To Summarise from the link:
"The problem of flickering and transparent menus is definitely a problem of the correct Windows 7 adjustment. 
You have to use the Win7 "Aero-Designs" and NOT on of the Basic-Designs like "Basis" or "klassisch". " :)
-------------------
I had recently tweaked my theme back to classic whilst benchmarking.. didnt realise it broke the s1 UI when right clicking to add an insert, causing massive flickering - this fixed it!

AERO theme =on (win7)
