    So... As you se in the title i deleted Finder... So here's what's going on:

    I went in the Finder package contents and started to mess there (God knows why). I deleted some **** in there, and when I restarted finder the buttons in the toolbar were gone. But luckily I had a backup on the ¨resources¨ folder! So I went and got the ¨resources copy¨ (I had duplicated) and put it in there, I deleted the original one, and POOF! The finder was gone.
    I know I should have rename the copy to the original name, but I forgot and the copy is still there.

    I can't open any folders, finder itself, locations or go to my workspace and mess with that.
    Can I rename the folder in the actual finders package contents, or do I download an app like finder to do stuff there? Please help me! :confused:

    Finder location:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app

    Resource location:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources

    I think the best thing to do at this point is just command-r boot to recovery and reinstall Mavs over top of your existing install. That will not erase your data and will fix your boo boo. :)
