    this is pretty strange and I'm wondering if this has occured to anybody. I wasn't able to click anything and the only way to shut down was to force shut down. I found it odd that iStat was working though. I'll stop because a picture is worth 1000 words

    Weird! Maybe go into Terminal and run "killall Finder" (w/o quotes)?

    I have heard this happen a few times with Snow Leopard. I would recommend going into the Finder (if it is possible) and going to ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist and removing that file. Try that. If that did not work, pop in the Mac OS X Snow Leopard disk and run a disk permissions and disk repair from the Disk Utility on the disk.
