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 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 :: Can't Close Finder Windows - Finder Reopens Them

May 1, 2012

When I close a finder window, the finder menu disappears and then reappears along with the finder window. It looks like finder is crashing and restarting. This started happening after I downloaded a pdf and put it in a folder. Maybe there is a bug in the way finder is rendering the image of the pdf file at the top of the finder window? 

How can I restore normal behavior of finder?

OS X :: Finder Window Closing When Opening Applications?

Jun 11, 2010

Today, suddenly, my finder has started quitting whenever I go to the "applications" tab. Every other part of the finder works but the applications refuse to open. It's worrying me because I think it could be one of those few mac viruses. I'm running a virus scan at the moment to see.

Also on the possible virus front. I had cleaned my HDD the other day and gotten it to 58 gigs left of free space. A few days later it came up as 78 free though which confused me.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Click Finder Icon On Dock ≠ New Finder Window?

May 22, 2012

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.

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 V10.7 Lion :: Changing Font Size In Sidebar Of Finder Windows?

May 26, 2012

I have one user account with small (say 9pt) Sidebar items in the custom list of Folders/Places. That user was migrated from Leopard but I do not recall if it came over like that or I set it up. In another user on same MBP the Sidebar items are significantly larger (say 13pt) and I would like to change them to be about 9pt like my other user account.

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.

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]
