Mac screen keeps flipping back to finder every 90 seconds

When I am working in any program every minute or so it flips over to "Finder" and I have to click back to the program that i was using. When it happens it is like a refresh.

I am running OS X 10.4.11
on a G4 Dual 1.25GHz Power PC
1.75 GB RAM

Tried zapping PRAM
Reinstalling OS X
Disk Verify/Repair
Thank you for your question. I am Sr. Mac Support Specialist, TD, ready to assist you.

There is a possibility your issue may be related to the Stuffit Preference pane (icons are called "panes" in this window) within System Preferences. Try these steps to see if this can resolve your issue:

Click on your Apple Menu and select System preferences.

* From within System Preferences, locate and click on the Stuffit
pane and then the AVR tab and turn it off to Stop it.

* Close the window and and reboot your Mac.

If this does not work, please let me know. I await your reply. Thanks! -TD
