this happened a while ago, and now i realise that its getting worse..

occasionally, but now more frequently the screen flashes and its a small
tint of blue, like the entire screen remains the same, but now with a tint of
blue.. several seconds later it will revert back to white..

now the small "tint" of blue has gotten darker, and the flashes are more
frequent..

is this a virus, or is it more likely a hardware problem, this monitor is a
Hyundai and is about 3 years old

please help soon!

Well, since it's "getting" worse, that pretty much rules out a software
problems and points to hardware, either video card or monitor. Or, if
you're lucky, it's just a fan on the video card that needs cleaning or
replacement.

I would bet on the monitor going bad.

sounds more like that CRT is on its last leg, other than that maybe
check your monitor cables at the computer and back of the monitor,
look at the screen and wiggle them and see if you notice the display
flickering.

Could be a bad cable. If one of the color signals (R, G, or B)
is intermittant you can get strange colors.
