    Hi,

    I'm a mac os X newbie. Since a crash, after I log in finder keeps crashing.
    Since finder keeps restarting every 10s, it is very hard to work with the system.

    I tried deleting the prefs files, but no help. Maybe I deleted the wrong ones?

    I could make another user, with this new user I could log in without any problems.

    Below is a part of the latest error log (could not post everything otherwise the message was too long).
    Anyone any ideas?

    Thanks in advance:

    I'm having the same problem

    and I don't know how to fix it either.

    I just upgraded to leopard, (10.5.0) and then ran the software update and updated to 10.5.5

    within about 5 hours every application I opened would crash, so I restarted. When I restarted, the finder problem you described with very similar crash reports started happening. I can log on fine as another user (and thankfully I have a backup admin user set up) but it's a pain and I need to figure out how to fix this.

    Could both of you send me a private message? I can help diagnose your crashes but you'll need to send me your full crash log.

    Hi John,

    Since I did not find a proper solution back then, I just created a new user, copied all necessary files from my old account to this new account and changed the owner on them. After deleting the original account, I even changed the login to the original one.

    I haven't had any problem since

    Kr,
    Tom.
