Does this happen consistently?
Can you take a video with a smartphone of this happening, upload it to youtube, and post the link here?
I suspect it has something to do with low-level windows kernel handling of the serial port, or maybe improper grounding of some equipment. Try setting up ROBOTC on a different computer and see if that works.

It would also help if you gave us info such as:
  • ROBOTC version
  • Windows version
  • The program you are compiling
The more info you give us, the better we can help you.
