    Hi
    Finder is crashing constantly right now, one continuous crash. I trashed the Finder pref file but this didn't do anything but I tried it in safe mode and it was fine no crashes.

    Really stuck as to what to do now? As it unusable right now.

    Many Thanks

    I have the same problem since the original El Capitan beta and still got it [10.11 Beta (15A262e)]. I already tried the forum search and Google. Does anybody have an idea how to solve this problem? Restarting Finder results an never ending loop of, well, restarting Finder.

    I even went so far as installing Windows 10 to be able to work on my master thesis. :-/

    Try and check if any messages appear in console.app, which can indicate the cause. As a temporary work around, you could install a finder replacement. Pathfinder can do that AFAIK.
