    For the past few days the fans in my iMac G5 have been goin full blast. I check out "Top" in the Terminal and it says that "Finder" is on average, using up about 40-70% of the processing. Is this normal? I can't figure out whats making it do that....

    Sometimes the Finder does that on my computer too, try typing into the Termianl "killall Finder" and see if that fixes it, otherwise, just restart.

    A restart always takes care of it for me as well.
