    Hey everyone,

    I'm running the latest OS X 10.11.2 (15C50) on a mid-2012 15" MBP (screenshot: I've been facing a rather annoying issue (even after resetting my Spotlight cache numerous times) – everytime I look for a file/folder using Spotlight and if Spotlight finds it, I hit Return or ⌘ + Return (to go to the folder containing this file/folder). But each time, Finder errors out saying:
    "You can't open the application because it is not responding." (

    However, if I open finder and browse to this file manually, things work, as one might expect.

    What is going on here? Is this a known bug? My recent experiences with OS X since Yosemite have been disastrous. :(

    - I'm only seeing this issue with El Capitan. Is this a known bug? I cannot seem to see many people see this issue, if I google.
    - no number of Spotlight index resets have helped.

    Can anyone help?

    I'm not seeing that issue here on El Capitan. Open Console app and repeat the process and see if it shows anything in the logs at that same time.

    I see that there is an entry in syslog, but its hard to know what's happening;

    20/01/16 12:06:33,398 SpotlightNetHelper[685]: tcp_connection_tls_session_error_callback_imp 2317 __tcp_connection_tls_session_callback_write_block_invoke.434 error 22
