I recently did a software update, and now Finder keeps popping up every 1-2 minutes. For example, if Im watching a youtube-video in fullscreen, Finder exits the fullscreen and Im left with the Finder toolbar at the top. A new Finder window does not pop up. Only the toolbar. It has done this twice while writing this post. Any good ideas as to whats going on?

Something in the Finder Prefs? I can't be more specific 'cos I'm not using Tiger right now.

It might be, but what sort of pref would be "Automatically make finder pop up every once in a while."?

What browser (safari, Firefox etc) were you using when this happened?I don't think this is a problem with Finder, its a problem with your browser which keeps on crashing.

Quite the browser that has the problem and in spotlight search for the name of the browser you were using when it crashed followed by .plist

so for example it should be

safari.plist
firefox.plist
etc…

In the search results you should have a file name such as
com.apple.Safari.plist
org.mozilla.firefox.plist
etc…

delete that file and launch the browser again. See if the problem persists.
