    I created a desktop icon and dragged Safari Bookmarks to it. Ever since, it keeps reloading the icon's finder and I have X-# of finder windows open and makes finder not responding.

    Mavericks System Version: OS X 10.9.5 (13F1066)
    Kernel Version: Darwin 13.4.0.

    Also, all my desktop icons are not showing up.

    I relaunched Finder and have cold booted. No luck.

    Suggestions?

    Delete the desktop icon, reboot and while rebooting holding down CMD-OPTION-P-R keys, keeping them until the computer reboots twice and you hear a full volume bong sound.

    Do you still have symptoms of the issue(s)?

    If so, please use Disk Utility to verify (not repair) the HFS Plus file system. What's reported by the utility?
