    Just bought and installed leopard (upgrade on my macbook) and it was working fine for a bit untill i got a bit ambitious and was doing a bit too much while spotlight was indexing, so it froze, i restarted and now finder wontoad propery, i get a dock and a menu bar that is not responsive, and doesnt include any icons up the right end including the time, but the spotlight icon is still there. My desktop icons wont load either. I can load firefox from the dock and that is it. I have terminal in the dock but that just bounces for a bit and crashes. When i cmd-alt-esc and force relaunch finder it doesnt do anything...
    Any ideas?
    Should i try to reinstall, perhaps archive?
    oh btw- ive tried repairing disk and permissions.

    EDIT: Just archived and installed seems to be fine...mmmm flashy dock....
    EDIT2: Can i or someone now delete this pointless thread?
