Nice first post & tip, thank you!

Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 11:00 AM (in response to JoeJoeBee)I have had the same problem after I installed the QT update, i tried the disk utility repair with no success. An d I do not have Stuffit installed, so that was not the case either. but on a whim, i turned off Afloat, and it worked... seems that something with both programs is the cause, i hope apple comes up with a fix so I can use Afloat again!Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 11:56 AM (in response to JoeJoeBee)Thanks for posting. This fixed the problem for me. I'm sorry it took you weeks to find the solution, but for those of us who have found your post, it was gold!G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Stuffit AVR!
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 12:48 PM (in response to JoeJoeBee)I installed the latest update for Quicktime and this problem appeared. Thanks for the fix. Refresh every 90 seconds is very irritating.
Prior to the QT update, I had the latest updates to the system software and all was well with Stuffit AVR running. I don't use AVR so this is not a big deal to me, but it appears that the QT update is the culprit.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 1:35 PM (in response to JoeJoeBee)This problem surfaced for me after 'Software Update' upgraded my Quicktime to 7.6 (from 7.4). Finder diappears, folders close...this happens every 90 seconds or so.
Following the advice by JoeJoeBee seems to have solved it (disabling Stuffit AVR in preferences).G5, iBook G4, G4, and a trusty old 7200/90, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 1:54 PM (in response to JoeJoeBee)Could you post the version of Stuffit you're using please?
It must be an older iteration, and the version will help out.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 5:32 PM (in response to JoeJoeBee)Thanks for the message! I just upgraded QuickTime and had the same problem... the Stuffit AVR fix worked great!iMac G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 800 MHz, 768 MB SDRAM
After the quicktime 7.6 update I can no longer open Civilization, Mail, Logic Pro, iTunes, or even the System Preferences panel (crashes immediately). Finder crashes upon selecting an audio files but doesn't seem to be doing the same looping. I've reverted to 7.5.5 using pacifist but this hasn't fixed anything. Also moved into a new folder all codecs from the Quicktime library. I only have Stuffit expander, so no AVR preference even if I could open the system prefs.
I can attach crash report from system prefs if that will help

Hi Colin, and a warm welcome to the forums!
It's quite acceptable to post a new topic, and actually preferable since you seem to have a different problem!
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2009 8:30 PM (in response to JoeJoeBee)JoeJoeBee! That was great! Thanks! How did you find that one? I just updated to QT7.6 and immediately encountered the problem and started dumping preferences, making system changes and etc., you saved me hours of work! AND there was no way I was going to re-install OS X (per others suggestions), I've pretty much found that is a very last resort and often does not fix the problem.)Mac 8core x 21 systems, FCStudio 2 x 21,...., Mac OS X (10.4.10), I'm a Writer/Producer/Editor, and Expert FCP Technical Engineer
Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2009 11:45 AM (in response to JoeJoeBee)Last night my Finder started going crazy after installing the QuickTime 7.6 update. I clicked STOP on the StuffIt AVR tab and found that it fixed the problem.
However, this morning, upon turning my computer back in, the Finder was freaking out again and crashing/rebooting every few seconds. I went back into the StuffIt AVR tab and saw that the tab has reset itself and AVR was on. Is there anyway to permanently set this option so I don't have to open my Control Panel every time I turn on my computer.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2009 10:17 AM (in response to JoeJoeBee)Awesome! Thanks for the help. By the way, my "StuffitAVR.prefpane" version is/was 9.0 (build 782), hopefully this helps others as well.PowerMac G5 Dual 2.7GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Allume Stuffit Deluxe 9.0
