    I'd repair permissions, trash the Finder prefs file, and/or restart.

    Check the prefrences or settings of all the programs you tried and see if one of these programs is causing it.

    I'd start by uninstalling the apps you've downloaded one by one and seeing which one the culprit is.

    Most definitely something you've mistakenly done with those apps.

    There is an option in Panther Cache Cleaner which enables something like "Single Application Mode" (can't check the exact name, not on my Mac at the moment....) Sounds like this is what's been activated, so PCC should be able to turn it off for you.
