    every now and then my desktop locks up.

    I cant select any icons and the only functionality that works is clicking and dragging to make a shaded gray box.

    Everything goes back to working order when I relaunch the Finder.

    Does anyone know what this problem is and/or have a permanent fix?

    Thanks.

    What version of OS X do you have? What kind of Mac do you have?

    Have you done the standard "repair permissions" and "reset the PRAM" ?
