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 V10.7 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...

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.

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.

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]

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.

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

Jun 17, 2012

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!

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.

Mac Mini :: System Crashes When Idle / Getting Out Of Blue Crashes

I have a late 2009 Mac Mini with 8GB of OCZ 1333 RAM and an Intel X25-M 160GB SSD. Running 10.6 fully updated and installed from scratch.I have been getting out of the blue crashes while the system is most of the times idle. Can it be the RAM? It's reported fine as 8GB 1333 DDR under the system info. The Intel SSD runs latest firmware.

This is the log from the last crash which happened a little ago.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Open Finder Window And Finder Preferences Don't Stick

Apr 5, 2012

Sometimes I simply cannot open a new finder window. If I use Command-N or if I choose New Finder Window in the Finder menu, nothing happens. If I am using Command-N, I can see the File heading in the Finder menu bar highlighting, and then after a few seconds the highlight goes, but no window opens. Also, clicking on my Downloads icon in the dock, the dialog opens showing all the files, but if I then click on Open in Finder, the dialog closes but nothing happens. Now that I am writing this message, it all works again! That's what I mean by 'sometimes'. This issue can last for tens of minutes. Secndly, and this is still a problem, my finder Preferences do not stick. So for instance, I don't want to see an icon for my hard disk on the desktop, so I untick this in Finder preferences. The icon disappears. If I now re-start, then it comes back. The same happens for removing the empty trash warning and all of the other Finder Preference tick boxes. 

Now, when the first problem of not being able to open a finder window suddenly stopped being a problem, the icon for the hard disk suddenly appeared on my desktop. So the two issues are linked. This has been going on intermittently for a few days. I have verified my disk, and repaired permissions.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Beach Balling - Failed Setting Front Application To Finder - Error?

I upgraded my MacBook Pro quad core 2.5 from Lion to Mavericks. Since then I get a LOT of beachballs when I'm using Finder. I repaired permissions, deleted com.apple.finder.plist (twice) and finally reinstalled Mavericks over the first one. Still painfully slow and lots of beachballs.

OS X :: Finder Icon Missing / Finder Became Invisible After Relauncing The Dock

Oct 1, 2009

Today I tried to change the finder icon in the dock. Because I'm cheap, I dont have candybar, so I tried to use liteicon. While this changed the finder icon in messages like "do you want to empty trash," it did not change it on the dock, even after logging out and relaunching the dock.

So I went into a bunch of core services and replaced all the finder .icns and .pngs with the one I wanted to use.When I relaunched the dock, the finder was invisible, but it still had the little blue "open" dot below where it was.I downloaded the candybar trial to try to fix it, but even candybar didn't get the icon back.

I'm using 10.5.8. Where are all the places the finder icon should be to show up?

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 :: 10.6.3 Crashes Win 7 When Using SMB

Apr 17, 2010

I thought this problem might be related to the SMB issues that everyone is having in 10.6.3, but I've tried most of those SMB fixes and nothing works. Here's what happens, I have a shortcut to my Win 7 share, I launch it and a window opens, drive shows up on the desktop and sometimes icons show up sometimes they don't. Trying to copy anything is out of the question, the copy will just fail. Even going through the finders GO menu will screw it up.

I am currently directly connected to my PC, was connected through a switch before, made no difference, nor should it. Strange thing about the windows box is that it will be responsive until I try to open anything, and then it will just go into an infinite loop and require a hard reboot. I did briefly get it working, enables the smb.conf extensions off item, did a repair disk, did a full onyx clean and somehow it worked for a day. Now it's totally hosed again. And yes, this started happening right when I updated to 10.6.3!
