Switching back to finder constantly
I updated some Apple software tonight at Apple's insistance. Now I will be in any program and the finder keeps bringing itself up front every minute. I might be in Safari, for instance, and all of the sudden the screen switches to the desktop, almost every minute. It has done it twice while I've meen typing this.

Any suggestions. As for the programs that were upgraded, they are...

2009-02-23 23:41:22 -0500: Installed "QuickTime" (7.6)
2009-02-23 23:43:09 -0500: Installed "Safari" (3.2.1)
2009-02-23 23:43:13 -0500: Installed "Java for Mac OS X 10.4, Release 8" (1.0)
2009-02-23 23:45:07 -0500: Installed "Security Update 2009-001 (PowerPC)" (1.0)

Now, every time I try to do a search in the Finder, it now jumps back to Safari, and the search cancels out. I am a 20 year Mac user and have never had this happen.

Finder jumping
I found the solution in another topic. The problem is caused by Stuffit: the preference pane StuffitAVR. I stopped it and the finder is working fine now.
Anyway: thanks!

Jumping Finder
Hi All-

Can you post the fix in this forum. That way, people don't have to search somewhere else for it. I updated my software last night, and the whole 'Jumping into the Finder' is driving me NUTS!! I suspect anyone who's running StuffIt will have the same problem.
