    I was trying to move a word document to a folder and all of a sudden it quits. Should I shutdown, unplug it?

    I have already tried restarting Finder and the iMac.

    PLASE HELP. :(

    I'm not sure if you're worried here about the Word document itself, about the fact that Word shut down, or both.

    Word quits on me quite a bit lately. I just reopen and see if the file was auto-saved (and I try to remember to save a LOT while I'm working).

    Shutting down the computer and / or unplugging it won't help anything, and it doesn't necessarily sound like the problem is huge. Just try to describe in a bit more detail what you're worried about, and what you want help to do now.

    I am wondering the same thing and if there is a way to start finder--and the dock--without restarting the Mac. I was in a hurry and didn't really look at things too closely--the problem with me happened with Pixelmator. First it quite, then finder, then the dock.

    Log out and log in, or force quit one of both of them using Activity Monitor in the utilities folder.
