Intel Mac :: Finder Keeps Relaunching Over And Over Again?

Mar 18, 2012

I recently used a theming application on my iMac called theme park and it screwed up my Mac, when I log in my finder boots up then crashes then relaunches and continues this over and over again, I tried restarting, and logging into a different account and it just won't work, when I try to open up an application it crashes as finder relaunches and a pop up appears saying the application quit unexpectedl, when I right clicked on the finder icon on my dock it says all the options like open folder, then a second later it changes to application not responding. Btw I can't access the "about my mac" pane but I do know that it is an intel based iMac with the glossy white appearance not the aluminum model and I think it's the iMac6,1 I don't have a time machine backup or restore disk

IMac (Intel) :: Applications Keep Relaunching Themselves After Quit

Jun 21, 2014

On one of my iMacs, some apps automatically relaunch themselves after I've quit them (this is nothing to do with restarting). I quit again, they relaunch. Multiple times. Then after a while, sometimes the quitting takes, and they don't relaunch.

IMac :: Quit Finder - Now Unable To Open

Jun 21, 2010

I accidentally quit finder instead of Safari this morning and now Finder will not open. I still have it in the dock but nothing will work. I also do not have the toolbar at the top either. I can still open the other icons on the dock and use them so I can get on Safari, Ical, etc. I thought I did this once before but I can't remember what I did to rectify the situation.

Intel Mac :: Why Does Finder Crash When Try And Open A Folder

Apr 7, 2012

Here's an interesting one for all you intelegent people out there.  

I have a 2011 iMac running Lion. I have a USB harddrive connected which stores digial versions of all my DVDs so that I can stream them to my AppleTV. Has no issues with it before now. A moment ago my Mac crashed and had to be restarted by holding down the button at the back (first time ever!!). When i turned the thing back on, the drive didn't mount so I went into disk utility and repaired the drive which resulted in it mounting.  

Here lies the problem, I can access files on my drive in every other folder but the Movies on. See the below video. [URL]

have I lost my 660gb+ collection of movies?

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.

Applications :: ITunes Keeps Relaunching On Its Own

Oct 15, 2009

I am having some strange behavior on my Early 2009 iMac with OS X 10.6. It seems that since the recent updates from Apple for iMovie and Performance enhancements, iTunes is starting all by itself randomly. Last night in the middle of the night iTunes was playing songs. I do not have any widgets running for iTunes so I do not think Dashboard is the issue. I have restarted my Mac and it still was happening this morning.

IMac (Intel) :: Disc Doesn't Run And Cannot Be Found In Finder

Jun 23, 2014

I have an iMac and am running OS X 10.8.5. I am trying to re-install my HP desk jet software but when I put the disc in, it doesn't pop up on the desktop and I can't find it in Finder. There's nothing in Devices. I've looked at all the settings and cannot understand why it's so difficult to run the disc. In System Preferences > CDs & DVDs, I have tried both all options including open in Finder and "Ask what to do". Nothing happens.

IMac (Intel) :: Moving Files / Folders In Finder

Aug 23, 2014

10.8 and 10.9 become a headache copying/moving files/folders between disks. After download selected images to my Imac from cards I used to move all of them to a local network backup disk (attached to a linux OS)

I don't do this anymore from a year ago: annoying warnings like "the file ... is in use" (not in use, even had been downloaded) stopped move; repeated procedure with the rest of the files included the 'used' one, over and over again and finally, after 12 times or so all files had moved. 100 files to move, stop, 80 files to move, stop, 60 files....... 

Same problem moving files between disks attached to the same iMac.'You have to provide an admin password...." -> Continue   Password set and again 'File ... is in use' (not in use, it is just backup file)Reseting the Mac.  Worse

.'You have to provide an admin password...."  No 'Continue' option, just only 'Ok' that will do.... nothing.My solution: Terminal: sudo mv source target 

I guess Finder has been tought to make life easier, isn't it?

IMac (Intel) :: Keeps Restarting / Finder Takes Forever To Display Files

Jun 26, 2014

my work computer (Windows), but my 2012 iMac that I've had for 2 years has worked flawlessly up until recently. A few days ago it started taking forever to display files in finder. I had to keep relaunching, and it would freeze. I tried the workaround that was posted here but that didn't work either. It went away for a few days, but last night it really came back with a vengeance. The relaunch finder trick only showed the current folder, while navigating to other folders would simply show the loading icon forever.  

Also, my iMac was shutdown for over an entire day yesterday, and when I turned it on the " Your computer restarted because of a problem". came up. I've never experienced this problem before, but after 3-4 tries it finally logged in to the Home screen. This is when I noticed the above (finder problems) returning from a few days ago after being absent. The finder issues continued, so I restarted the mac, and it just kept cycling over and over (reboot, try to load, auto-reboot, etc.).

Is this an issue with the HDD? I did a disk utility check the other day and it said everything was in great shape.
