My iMac at work is having a strange issue... every time I double-click a folder to open it, it opens for a split second and closes again, followed by a strange sort of single flicker on the screen.

Anyone had this sort of issue before?

I'm running a new iMac Core 2 Duo with 10.4.10

Sounds like a folder action command. Spotlight 'Folder Actions Setup', open it up and look for anything suspicious...

I think your Finder is crashing. Have you run any diagnostics?

Relaunch Finder?

Yep, tried relaunching Finder, creating a new user, resetting the PRAM, etc, etc... the only thing that fixed it was reinstalling the system software.

Thanks anyway guys :)
