: Finder running at 125%

Since updating to 10.5.2 my iMac is acting weird.

If I have a window or application open and it is either near the edge of the screen or a large window, my Finder starts running like crazy usually at around 125% or so. If I resize the window to be smaller or close the app the finder returns to around 7%.

WTF!!??

Its very annoying as I like having iCal large and Mail open to, in different Spaces?

Any ideas, anyone else having this issue?

This is not normal.

Run the latest version of OnyX to repair permissions and clear caches, then restart. If the problem persists, disable third-party startup crap. If the problem persists, set up a "virgin" account and see if it does it there. If the problem persists, backup and then archive and install.

Well, I did all of the above and the issue is just with my account, which sucks.

I do have a Time Machine drive hooked up to this machine, so whats the best way to reinstall??

Plus, I guess there is still a chance that the issue will return with the reinstall of my "home" folder.

ARGH!!
