    Since upgrading to Lion from Snow Leopard my Finder window has disappeared. It shows briefly if I swipe between desktops, but doesn't stay on any of them.

    If I click on Finder in the dock the top toolbar turns to Finder but no window shows. If I go to File > Open , nothing shows. Naturally this makes selecting files rather difficult.

    I've got it to show by typing "killall Finder" in the terminal, but this only lasts until I shut down. When I restart, it has disappeared again.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    It repaired a bunch of things, but when I restarted the Finder window disappeared again. Only came back after typing "killall Finder".

    Very strange. Everything else works perfectly.
