Unintentional switching between windows

    Lately I've noticed a new phenomenon. If I click on a website link, or on a
    different file folder in a list from the one I was viewing, any sort of
    change that involves bringing up a new page or new images, about eight out
    of ten times my screen will switch to another open window. If I'm in OE
    looking at email in my Inbox and click to my Sent Mail folder, for example,
    the screen will switch to my open browser window or to an open application.

    It's a relatively new thing, and I can't think of anything I've done that
    would cause it. It's difficult to imagine that it's a setting -- why would
    anyone want a setting that automatically switches you to a different window
    than the one you're using?

    Ideas?
