Application windows disappear when switching or opening applications

OSX troubles - whenever I open or switch applications, all other open application windows disappear. How do I fix this?

I'm on OSX 10.4.11, and an Intel MacBook.
Whenever I have applications running, whenever I switch applications (either through cmd-tab, clicking on the dock or through Quicksilver) all currently open application windows disappear, rather than moving behind the application in focus. cmd-H (hide) has also stopped working - I can no longer hide applications by choice (it just happens whenever I open or switch). Also, the menu that pops up when I cmd-tab occasionally fails to register an app - e.g., I'll have Mail, Safari and Terminal open. I'll cmd-tab and Mail won't show up. Or occasionally Finder.
The only change I can recall making recently is installing Visor
. However, I've since removed Visor (and SIMBL), and the problem persists. I've run Onyx and Cocktail (restoring permissions and cleaning caches etc.), to no avail.
Can anyone help? I just want my regular OSX back...
