Hmmm... OK, troubleshooting step 2, log in as another user. Is Finder still sucking way too much CPU? If so, we have a real problem. If not, we're in very good shape.MacTruck said:Nope, nothing but fresh tiger install with all updates applied. In terminal I use top to view activity. That is where I saw it. It will got to 90% just from having a finder window open of my hard drive. I don't get it. Never had a problem in Panther.
Me said:I've read about this problem a few times on the forums and each time the solution has been very simple. It's usually that an icon on the desktop has become corrupt, to test this create a folder and pull all the icons on your desktop in there and see if the problem goes away.
If it does, work until you isolate the icon.
