    It sounds like Finder may have crashed. . does a restart help?

    one thing i forgot to do was to RESTART (blush). I did that and its working fine! Thanks

    I don't know why I didn't think to do that! hahaha

    I have the same issue and although you can restart Finder to cure it, it does occur again and again. I have a new Macbook Pro. I have seen it reported elsewhere too, but no fix mentioned. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I have a MacBook Pro with 10.5.8 and have the same problem (I think since I started using TimeMachine). I found that relaunching Finder will do the trick as well (restarting takes so long...)
