MacBook Pro :: Finder Crashes Continuously (OS X Lion 10.7.3)

Apr 14, 2012

When running a lot of different applications (OpenOffice, R64, Microsoft Office, iTunes, etc.) on my MacBook Pro (2.2 GHz Core i7, 8 GB RAM), Finder freezes continuously. Most of the time it'll restart quickly, or in the best cases, it will eventually start working again after a few minutes. This is extremely annoying as I use my computer for work and constantly have to wait in order to access files. I've tried deleting hidden files in directories among other things, but nothing seems to do wonder.

MacBook :: Safari Crashes Continuously?

May 27, 2012

My macbook, version 10.5.8, started crashing today. There was an update for Adobe Flash Update that popped up earlier today (I think it wanted to install a debugger), I X'd it out because I was doing something else (bad mistake), and now Safari crashes continuously every time I log in. I've tried to download things to my laptop to fix the problem, but Safari crashes before the download can even get halfway through. I've even tried to find the flash update for earlier, but either I can't find it or Safari doesn't stay open long enough for the update to download. The strange thing is, this is only happening on one account on my laptop– the one where the Adobe Flash Update popped up on. The other account on my laptop has Safari working fine (but it's not the account I want to use).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Crashes After Loading NAS?

Feb 21, 2012

I've tried to copy something from my NAS to the Mac and had to quit in the middle of the process.

Now, when the Finder connects to the NAS it crashes (icons disappear from the desktop, same do finder windows and bar). Tried Relaunch, nothing happens.

Tried Reboot, at first everything is ok, then (couple of minutes later) I get the message that the connection to the NAS was interrupted and then nothing works anymore.

System is updated, caches are cleared, all periodic scripts have been run...

MacBook Pro :: Finder Crashes When TimeMachine Starts Backup

May 27, 2012

My finder/computer crashes at least once or twice a day when the Time Machine backups start (there are other times where the backup will go fine).  I am using a MacBook Pro, 2011 2.2 GHz i7 with 8GB of Ram.  I have a 64 GB Samsung SSD drive I use for startup and applications, and a 700 GB SSD/7500 hybrid drive mounted in the Superdrive bay for docs/music/etc.  

I have a 1TB WD HDD connected via USB I use for Time Machine. Looks like there might be something amis when I am using Chrome and Time Machine in the superdrive bay SSD/HDD setup?  Also some software update errors were being thrown just before the crash too. 

Here is the console Log just before the crash through the reboot: 

5/27/12 12:45:10.207 PM com.apple.SecurityServer: Failed to authorize right 'system.install.app-store-software' by client '/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/PackageKit.framework/Versions/A/Resources/in stalld' [8335] for authorization created by '/usr/sbin/softwareupdate' [8334]

MacBook Air :: Finder Crashes Using Firefox And Time Machine?

Jul 2, 2012

I have a MacBook Air  1.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM running OS X 10.6.8 with all software up todate today under this OS. I use Firefox 13.0.1 as a Browser.  I experience many Kernel Panic's and in some cases, the Finder, as noted in in the Force Quit pop-up quits completely.  I note this when using Firefox as a Firefox "lock-up" and most times a colored spinning wheel associated with Firefox.  Coincidentally, Time Machine is running during many of these occurrences.  Some times, the Finder, as well as all (not many) app's running at that time also display on Force Quit as being "lock-up" displayed in red letter in Force Quite and I must use the "shut off" button to restart.

Last week, I did a complete reinstall of the most current OS from an external disk following a complete examination of the system using the latest TechTools Pro software and then conducted a "rebuild" of the file structure and removal of all fragmentation and approved a new directory installation by TechTools Pro. I use VirusBarrier, with the latest updates, (Version 10.1.16), and have continuing scans for all that is available in that application. 

Time Machine backups are made over  What, if anything, might I do to restore this Mac to normal functioning.  I have other Mac Computers (portable and desktops) running the same OS version and and software.

Software :: Finder Crashes When I Run PS CS4 / Fix It?

Jan 29, 2010

When I run Photoshop CS4, Finder crashes. Then it offers nothing but the spinning color wheel, and my only option is to manually turn off my computer (which seems bad for my hard drive.)

I've made no major changes to my system lately, nor have I downloaded/installed anything recently.

What is the issue? Finder? CS4? Tiger?

I need to fix this immediately.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Finder Crashes When Trying To Search

Apr 2, 2012

The original problem was whenever I opened a new Finder window and began to type in the search bar, as soon as I got three letters in, the whole thing would crash on me. After some unsuccessful fix attempts, now Finder no longer opens from the dock icon its supposed to. When I click on the icon, a new one with the default App icon opens at the end of the dock, and it works from there. The search problem also only appears when opening a finder window directly from the dock. If Finder opens to, say, allow me to choose a file to upload to a website, search doesn't crash on me. Spotlight still works correctly.

I tried to delete/reset the prefrences, but when I go to the folder, the preference list for Finder isn't there. I tried removing all the preferences and restartting just in hopes it would help, but it didn't solve anything. I've also repaired disk permissions using the disk utility, but that seems to have created the new problem.

OS X :: Applications Folder Crashes Finder For One User?

Feb 11, 2008

My main user account went haywire at the weekend - dock disappearing and Finder cycling and rebooting every few seconds. I fixed those issues by trashing the dock and finder .plist files, and all appears to be well except...I cannot access the Applications folder without the Finder crashing. All other folders appear fine.- I can access the Applications folder using another user- I can access the apps themselves from spotlight- I tried trashing .DS_Store - no difference.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Crashes While Naming Files

Jun 23, 2014

For the past several months (and only since downloading Mavericks) Finder crashes about 50% of the time I try to name a file on the Desktop. I click the file, hit 'enter', and either right away or while trying to type the first letter, the rainbow spinning wheel comes up and I have to Relaunch Finder.

My computer specifications:MacBook Pro, 13-inch, Late 2011Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MBSoftware: OS X 10.9.3 (13D65)Memory: 4 GBStorage: 415.18 GB free out of 499.25 GB; 500 GB SATA Disk 

Relaunching Finder will usually cancel any changes made to the document name before it crashed, and will allow me to then name the file, but usually the next file I try to rename crashes and the process repeats.

OS X :: Plugging In External Hard Drive Crashes Finder?

Feb 14, 2008

wouldn't even load. It would just show the little blue "light" flashing on and off, as if Finder were launching, crashing, launching, crashing.After some deduction, I found the problem to be my USB WD hard drive. It used to previously work fine. It has only one partition on it, which is HFS+ formatted. Disk utility verify/repair reports that the drive is fine.

Intel Mac :: Whenever Try To Access Downloads Folder, Finder Crashes And Restarts Itself

whenever I even go near the Downloads folder, Finder crashes. This happens whether I try to access it from Users -> (username) or if I am trying to attach something to an email, in list view. It is really irritating me, because I put most of my stuff into this folder, and cannot access it!

Wasn't this an option previous to 10.7.4? It doesn't work now.When clicking the Finder icon in the Dock, a new Finder window would open? I know about Finder prefs - General - Always open folders in new window but this isn't what I mean.I'd have a Finder window open then want to copy/move something so I clicked on the Finder icon in the dock to get a new window.Every time I clicked the Dock icon, I'd get a new Finder window.

MacBook Pro :: Lion 10.7.4 Flash Plugin Crashes?

May 29, 2012

I am using a mid 2009 Macbook pro, and just updated to 10.7.4. Since doing this my Flash plugin crashes on both Safari and Firefox so I can't even load Youtube videos.  I've got the most updated version of Firefox and Flash player, and after looking through forums have tried rebooting my Macbook several times. Each time I reboot Youtube videos load a little bit more without crashing, but I havn't got more than 5 seconds into a video yet.

MacBook Pro :: Several Kernel Crashes - Reinstalled Lion Again

Jun 8, 2012

The crashes keep on coming, so I bought Mackeeper and it told me that my system was clean but it still crashes. Most of the crashes happen while on the internet either watching "blink box" or shifting between sites. Mackeeper automatically checks my internet security and I am at a loss at to what is causing it. It is always a kernel (panic attack) and the screen always goes gray as the line comes down. Does anyone know what is happening.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 2012 Macbook Pro Crashes And Reboots Randomly?

Jun 21, 2012

I just bought my new 2012 macbook pro a couple weeks ago, and so far it has crashed and rebooted by itself four times. Three of those four times, I had only been running  a couple programs, such as Chrome and Mail, while all others were closed. the entire computer will freeze for about 6-7 seconds (no response to mouse movement/keyboard) and then shut down and reboot.  

Is this a bug with OS X Lion? or the new macbook Pro? or my macbook pro specifically indicating there's some sort of defect?

MacBook Pro :: RAM Continuously Disappearing

Jun 22, 2014

I have 4GB of RAM on my (aging) MacBook Pro and use a very useful app called Memory Clean to maximize the RAM from time to time. 

Recently, my laptop has been getting slower and slower to the degree that even opening windows in Finder brings it an almost complete standstill. When I checked the RAM it had decreased to under 10MB. 

What I've found is that I can run Memory Clean and the more I run it, the more is freed up and the quicker the laptop runs (up to 2GB+ being available). However, within minutes it is plummeting again and so I have to rerun Memory Clean. Suffice to say, the laptop as a whole seems to be struggling. 

What can I do-and is this a hard drive failing issue or something else?

OS9/OS8/System 7 :: Collection Of Fonts Crashes System When Opened In Finder?

May 21, 2012

I have an extensive collection of fonts (60,0000+). Several hundred of them will crash my system when I open one of them in Finder (double-click the suitcase). I picked one at random for some serious examination. I looked at my sample with many font tools. My latest tool was FontDoctor (v5 and v7). FontDoctor reported "no problems found" with my font. Yet the crash persists.Any tool that can do a thorough job of investigating and repairing my corrupt fonts.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: My Apple Macbook Pro (Mid 2010) Crashes Multiple Times A Day

Jun 8, 2012

My Apple MBP keeps crashing on me multiple times a day. It used to be rare, now it is so frequent, it is easily reproducable. I have tried the Disk Utility and  shift+ctrl+option+power btn to reset some unit. but it is not working. Is there a Mac guru that can go through the log and let me know what's wrong? I can't believe Apple makes such crappy products. I fell in love with Apple a couple of years ago and have ended up buying many Apple products, now I have started to hate my MBP I got for almost 3 grand just 2 years ago.  May be this is the beginning of the end for Apple, the QA is doing nothing.
