To stop the cursor from blinking in applications such as Word:
1- Start Regedit
2- Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
3- Add a String Value
4- Name it CursorBlinkRate
5- Give it a value of -1
6- Reboot the computer..

Or download the following reg file...

Good luck
Accessibility options. Display. Pull it all the way to the left = no blink.
