    Hi, this is the second time this happened to me. I am using OS 10.3 What happens is a user gets screwed up, You click to open the hard drive or try to open anything and it just spins on you, until you force quit. Although when I rebooted in OS 9 I don't have that problem, or when I create a new user in OS X I don't have that problem as well. I repaired permissions, repaired hd, dumped preferences, with the same results. In the past I copied the user documents, desktop, etc. to a new user in order to fix that problem. Does anyone know what causes that, and maybe a better way to fix it other than creating a new user? Thanks

    Try removing:

    /Users/your_user/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist

    Logout and log back in.
