    My mbp was running a little slow, so i decided to take a look at activity monitor to see whats going on when i saw this.

    Finder is using over 1GB of ram. Anyone have similar issues?
    I'm thinking there might be a memory leak somewhere in 10.6.7 because this happened after upgrading.

    In Terminal:

    Code:
    killall Finder
    Or simply reboot.

    I thought it was a memory leak, but i can't reproduce the error.

    hope you figure this out and it doesn't become a rebuild for you...
