Default Canon SX40 flashing red area on screen

I've searched the manual and the web and haven't found an answer to this. On the viewing screen when in picture mode, there's an annoying flashing red area where there are very light areas in my scene. I think I may have turned this on because I don't remember it being there in the beginning. (I've had the camera for 3 days.) Can someone please tell me to turn this off? Thanks much.

G'day BS

Sounds like you have activated "flashing highlights"
Go to the spanners menu and look for "show overexposed highlights" and turn it off

Regards, Phil
