PTH iTunes notifier. Turn it off, and the 'patch' goes away.
(just a guess)
No, it is not going
it s still there

Bet it's another background app causing a conflict of some sort. Slowly trim down your apps running until the 'patch' goes away.
Do you have a second user set up that is 'vanilla' to test with?

Do you have any peripherals connected to your machine but do not have their Classic drivers/extensions loaded in your Classic extension set? If so, the box is probably a dialog box informing you of that fact, but my guess is that the interface sometimes gets screwed up between the Classic app and the OS X Finder. I remember this being more of an issue with pre-Jaguar OS X and the only way I found to get rid of the untouchable box was to logout and login again.
I think u are right, its pre Jaguar version of OS X...hmmmm..
so nothing i can do about that.
As u said i had connected the HP scanner to my machine!!!
But the problem started coming from last 2 weeks???

Are you running multiple computers on a network? I have noticed that a dialog box appears very quickly with a click to ok button at the very end of classic loading. A work around, but not a perfect solution is to click your mouse multiple times where the dialog box ok button appears. You can then run classic and osx without the screen box.
Hope this helps,
