IMac :: Finder Deactivated - Application Cannot Be Opened

I have accidentally deactivated 'Finder' when I used the 'Force Quit' option. I didn't look before I clicked. I still have the icon in the dock but when I click on it, it says: 'The application Finder can't be opened. -10810.' How can I reactivate it?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Application Switches Spaces When Opened From Finder
I am using Lion 10.7 , I assigned dreamweaver to desktop1 by choose Options > This Desktop when in desktop1. Then relaunch DW and it correctly opened in desktop 1. Now if i open a file using in finder (which is itself assigned to desktop3) on a file that is default to DW then Dreamweaver moves itself to Desktop3.

I thought the point was that we could assign different applications to different spaces and they would stay that way. Are we saying that if a file is opened from finder its default application will be moved and set up of spaces does not apply ?.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Application Finder Can't Be Opened
Tried to turn off computer and it kept prompting me to force quite various applications. I have since restarted the computer but now am getting this error when trying to open Finder. I have looked through several discussions and unfortunately am not an apple expert so much of what I am reading is foreign to me.I have opened the Terminal and entered a prompt that made all of my desktop docs and finder visable, but as soon as I closed out the Terminal it all disappeared again.Can anyone point me in the right direction - step by step - to get Finder back up and running.To my knowledge all other applications seem to be working as normal.FYI I do have a few extermal items attached to the Mac. (1) extermanl hard drive for the Time Machine, and USB drive.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Application Finder Cannot Be Opened On New XServe
I just installed a brand new XServe out of the box and immediately installed all the software updates, incl. 10.6.4, etc. Also, there's a new LaCie 12Big 12TB RAID installed and updated. I always restart everything afterwards too, and repeat the process until no more available updates show up. All seemed to test and run OK, to begin with. Then, I started copying over the 6TB of jobs data, from our old server & Apple RAID to the new Xserve & LaCie RAID (via a direct FireWire link between the two servers). As the copying should take most of the weekend to complete, I started it and left the office for the w/e, with about 100GB already copied over by the time I left. I work mostly from home and control the server via a VNC viewer, but of course can't do hard restarts (which is compounding the problem bigtime for me).

When I got home and connected in, the copying had hung at about 150GB, on the old and new servers. Couldn't cleanly stop the copying on either machine. So, I 'relaunched' the Finder on the new server. Attempting to re-open the finder now results in the -10810 error, "The application Finder can't be opened". I daren't attempt a Restart from home because if it does hang the machine, I've no way of reconnecting until someone presses the power button in London (on Monday, and not straightforward at that either!). The same problem is affecting some non-server SL 10.6.4 (and earlier) users too. By trawling through a thread on that forum (didn't realise I wasn't in the server forum at the time) and trying just about everything suggested, I still can't get the Finder back, after hours of trying. So, my first problem is how to get the server to restart either the Finder or itself, from my remote connection.

I can access the Apple menu (if I first open Terminal, which brings up its menu bar, including the Apple). I can also run Terminal commands (and frequently do). Would a Restart issued from either the Apple menu or Terminal get me out of this nightmare, or just lock the server up? Or, what else can I do (apart from make the long journey to press the button)? Don't know if it's any clue here, but it seems whatever commands or apps I try to run that are disk related don't do anything at all, apart from hang (incl. Disk Utility or diskutil commands). Typing df in Terminal does however show my 'mounted' drives info. I had an external Toshiba drive connected via USB at the time, though had been copying files to/from that without issue before this problem arose, and it wasn't being accessed at the time Finder disappeared. Anyway, I was able to unmount that drive with the umount command, but it's apparently made no difference to the current situation.

MacBook Pro :: Accidentally Opened 137 Folders In Finder - Leading To Finder Freeze?
I was looking through my music folder at folders of songs I had recently transferred onto my MacBook Pro from my iPod, intending to load them into my iTunes library. Of course, I accidentally clicked 'OPEN' instead of 'OPEN WITH', and Finder went absolutely rapid-fire, opening them all on my desktop. This consequently led to Finder becoming unresponsive. I attempted to re-launch Finder, and of course, all 137 folders start shooting up and opening on my screen again, making Finder freeze up every time.

I've rebooted, I've looked all over for answers, and I'm going bonkers trying to make my Finder functional again. Because of this, I can't go through my documents or downloads folders seeing as they use the Finder, which is a huge issue at the moment, because I'm a graphic design student and I need my computer for class.

The MBP I'm using currently is a replacement which I purchased last week for my previous one that got stolen early June, so there's really not a lot on it yet, so in the event that I somehow need to wipe my drive, it won't kill me.

OS X :: Finder Cannot Be Opened -10810
Lately I've been getting this error more and more often.

The application Finder can't be opened.-10810

I did some searching, and the only info I could find was for other applications, but nothing on Finder.

I get it from a fresh restart, with only Safari and iStat Menus running. Whatever is causing it is also hammering the processor to 100%. It's taken me almost 5 minutes just to type out this thread.

I'm on a 1st gen. MacBook Air, running Snow Leopard, fully up to date.

Am I looking at a fresh install?

OS X Leopard :: Address Book Application Crashes When Opened
So I spent about an hour on the phone with Apple Support trying to fix my Address Book problem without doing an Archive and Install (I didn't want to lose two hours). The problem is a missing folder in your system called "YahooSync.framework" It's an Apple file that I think some application (maybe even Yahoo) on install removes and breaks Address Book. Here's the problem:
1. Open Address Book
2. Address Book asks you to relaunch, report, or close
3. If you click relaunch, Address Book asks you again to relaunch, report, or close
4. Now you have the option to Reset and Relaunch (which also does not fix the problem).

If you click on Report a problem and scroll down to the bottom you should see something similar to this (locations may be different but you should notice the missing "YahooSync" folder)
"Dyld Error Message: Library not loaded: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/YahooSync.framework/Versions/A/YahooSync
Referenced from: /Users/(Your user name)/Applications/Address Book
Reason: image not found"

Here is the solution (first make sure that the bottom of your crash report looks like mine.)
1. First check to make sure you don't have the YahooSync folder by going to Macintosh HD->System->PrivateFrameworks-> (there should be no folder named "YahooSync.framework)
2. If you don't have that folder you can donwload it here: [URL] or ask someone who has a 10.5 (any 10.5 will do, 10.4 will-NOT- do) to right-click (control-click) and compress the file. This will put it a compressed folder their desktop and ask them to send it to you.
3. Copy the folder to Macintosh HD->System->PrivateFrameworks. You should drop this folder into the PrivateFrameworks folder within system. Note: you will need to authenticate and be an admin to do this. If you re-open AddressBook it should work!

Snow Leopard :: New Launched Application Staying Behind All Opened?
Since 10.6 I've noticed a new thing and that is that when I work in one app och then start another, in 10.5 the app showed up in front of other apps but in 10.6 every new app that I start stays behind all other apps and I have to click on the Dock icon i order to bring it up? This is a bit annoying and I wonder if I can change this somewhere? Cant find anything on this subject and I have this "problem" on all of my Macs so its not a single computer problem.

ITunes Mac :: Window Moves And Shrinks When Application Opened
When I open iTunes I have the window sized to pretty much fill my screen. If I close the window and then reopen it, the new iTunes window is shrunk to about 1/4 of the screen, and moved to a new location on the screen. This happens when I go from mini-player back to full-size as well. This is the only window that doesn't seem to remember its size and location, and it's been going on for several weeks now. I had hoped that the latest iTunes update might fix it, but no luck. I can resize the window manually, but it's annoying that I have to resize it every time I open it. Why doesn't iTunes remember its window size and location? I am not switching screen resolution or plugging into external monitors.

OS X :: Opened Finder Windows Not Reappear After Shut Down?
After reinstalling Snow Leopard (file system corruption, long story) and upgrading to 10.6.4, I noticed that any Finder windows I leave open when I shutdown or logout do not reappear/re-open on my next login. I was able to do this before the reinstall. I don't know how long my old install was corrupted, so I don't know if the windows staying around was caused by the corruption or not. Is this normal behavior or should they stay open?

Delete "[name]" and download it again from the App Store.

OS X Leopard :: Preview Images In Finder (Default Opened) Gone
Since a couple of days the preview of images default opened by Preview are gone. Preview of files/images that are default opened by other programs are still there. I tried one of the answers in the (unanswered) topics where it was suggested to delete the file, but this doesn't help.

I think this change has occurred after I installed the "Panorama maker 4" program that came with a Nikon Coolpix camera. This program can "stitch" together a number of panoramically made shots, so it is made to meddle with JPEG files. Also the installation procedure is very un-Apple-like and un-OS X-like. Of course removing this program does not help. How to recreate the preview?

Snow Leopard :: Intermittently Text File Cannot Be Opened Directly From Finder
One day I would like to duplicate a text file by right click such file to select "Duplicate". However I accidentally pressed "Return" before right click selecting "Duplicate". It means that after pressing "Return", I entered the mode to rename this text file name, but then I continuously to right click selecting "Duplicate".

After that, I saw a duplicated text file with the same name plus "copy" after this name. The file was dim in color. I tried to delete it but Finder disallow me to delete it. Finder told me that it was occupied by other and ask me whether I would like to "Force Delete". Then I clicked yes. Deletion operation was successful.

After that, when I opened the same original text file by directly double click the text file. The operation was failed and Finder output two error window prompt with below two error messages:

"The application can't be found"
"The operation can't be completed
An unexpected error occurred (error code -43)"

After that, I tried to check the information by clicking "Ctrl-I" on this file. By default, I use TextEdit to open text file. I tried to select TextEdit as the default application for all text file in the information window. However, Finder still output above two windows prompt of error messages.

If I tried to open TextEdit or any other editor application first and then open such text file directly from its menu, the text file can then be opened.

Even for files within the same directory, I also cannot directly double click them from Finder to open it. Until I close the Finder window and reopen a new Finder window of such directory, then I can double click to open text file, where it would be opened by my default text editor "TextEdit".

After that, from time to time, such two error message windows will prompt out disallowing me to directly double click opening the text file. For example, originally a text file can be opened properly. After working on the file some time later and try to open the other text file in the same directory, such two message windows will prompt out. Or when I work such text file and the swap to other application, and then go back to Finder to double click such opened text file, such two error message windows will also prompt out. The only way to temporary fix it is to close the Finder window first and reopen it again.

In addition, after such accident, I also discovered that Finder cannot instantly update directory content anymore. For example, I setup FTP server and someone can upload files to my Public directory, and where my Public directory has been opened before anyone ftp files to me, the Public directory cannot update itself after someone uploaded files to me through ftp.

Or sometime I execute copy operation within VMware image to copy a file to shared directory, I also cannot see the directory in Finder update the content. I have to click to other directory and then go back to such shared directory so as to refresh the directory content list. Even I click "Ctrl-R", it cannot refresh the directory.

In the past before such accident, Finder works fine to update directory content promptly after any upload or copy operation.

In addition to bug fix patch, is there any workaround solution I can try to recover my Finder?

MobileMe / IDisk :: Finder Not Responding On Opening / Unable To Close Opened Files
The subject says it all: Finder is not responding when I open iDisk. I don't have a local copy of iDisk (I manually sync) because I don't trust the process, and this helps to confirm that distrust: now I'm losing control of my computer when I open iDisk (actually, an alias to the documents folder on my iDisk which I keep on my Desktop). It's happening right now. I'm still able to access other running programs - in this case, Firefox - but not Finder, which Activity Monitor reports as Not Responding.

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.

For some reason, even though all of my fonts are deactivated in FA, they are all available in Microsoft Office and CS4 applications! With ~3000 fonts, you can imagine that these applications take a while to start up (especially office - CS4 apps tend to be a bit speedier).

Software :: Pages Deactivated After 90 Seconds
For the past 3-4 days what ever program I am using has the same problem. After 90 seconds or so, all the icons on the desktop disappear, then reappear. At the same time I find I am in the Finder and have to select the page I was working on. This occurs when I am online or disconnected from the web, and applies to all programs. I am operating a 17" G4 iMac with OS 10.4.11 and Firefox. I have rebooted cpu and modem, run usual diagnostics including TechTool and disconnected printer, scanner and tablet with no change. My guess is that my power supply is "flickering" though I get no error messages or other clues. I use a UPS/surge protector. Could this be a sortware glitch? or should I give up, get someone to pull the hard drive and buy a new imac? This deactivation has occurred at least 6 times while I composed this message.

Snow Leopard :: Old Account Deactivated But Still Trying To Download Mail
I had a non Mac email account which I had set up in Mail and it was downloading mail normally to my mac. Then I got a mac email account, set it up in mail and began receiving mail on both accounts. Then I closed the non mac account and once it was completely deactivated at the service provider I noticed that it was continually trying to download mail from this source and showing it as offline. To remedy this I went into Mail preferences, account and deleted it. I was expecting all of the several years worth of old mail to still be available in its folder. However it does not appear anywhere. Where would it be and how can I get it to show up in Mail when the account is no longer active?

My G4 PowerMac QS 733 running 10.5 wont restart. My daughter says it was going when she used it, but that a message came up that the USB port which had the mouse in it was being deactivated because it was drawing too much power. I think the mouses cord was damaged. She moved the mouse around the ports, and the computer deactivated them all and then shut it self down!

I have tried plugging in other keyboards and another mouse, but to no avail. I have unplugged everything, including power. Now the when I try to restart, the start up light on both the screen and tower just flash as if the Mac is asleep, but the Mac doesnt start up and I get no start up tone.

Windows On Mac :: Monitor / Keyboard Deactivated While Gaming
I'm running a Mac Pro with 4GB RAM, 512MB of Video RAM, 2 dual core 2.66GHz processors (or more, not completely sure but I know it's at least 2.66GHz). I recently installed Windows 7 using bootcamp, and so far it has disappointed me by actually being good.... something I'm not used to when dealing with windows. Anyway, the OS runs fine for almost everything with the exception of video games. I've only installed one game on it (Oblivion) but for whatever reason at seemingly random time intervals (only when playing the game) the monitor turns off and can't be turned on without a restart, and the keyboard and mouse can no longer input. I can hear the sound playing fine (in fact on multiple occasions I heard myself being killed), but no video and no input.

I have to restart the computer by forcing a shutdown (holding the power button) in order to get input back. I'm not sure if this issue is strictly windows, as it sometimes happens whenever I play EVE when booted into Mac. I'm fairly confident that it's not my graphics card, because if it were, why would mouse and keyboard functions be disabled? I've tried playing around with the games settings (highest possible settings, disabling HDR/Bloom, low settings, ini tweaks, etc) but it makes no difference on the result. Every time, without fail, the monitor turns off, keyboard and mouse stop working, and I am forced to restart. Again, I'm not sure this is strictly a Windows 7 issue as it has happened before when gaming on my Mac. But on the Mac it's a very rare occurrence, it's happening consistently on the Windows partition.

System Specs:
Mac OS X 10.5.7
Windows 7 Build 7100
2 x 2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
ATI Radeon X1900 XT

All drivers up to date on both operating systems.
