    On my account

    On my wife account, which is a main account, it is worse.

    What is this, and how to get rid of it?

    That is one inquisitive finder all right!

    Did you have any menu items added or something odd like that? Have you rebooted?

    I have one ?. I think it was an icon / shortcut that was added to the Finder toolbar that got removed or is no longer there after the update.

    How can you get rid of it? Look like it infects a lot of people.

    Edit: I get rid of it. Thank you GGJstudios on another thread and thanks Kate. to point me to.

    ny somewhere
    if u drag a file or folder accidentally (or for that matter, on purpose) to the bar it stays there...as a shortcut. if u DELETE that file or folder, you get...the question mark.

    to remove it, open a window, go to View>Customize Toolbar, then...drag it off.
    a puff of smoke, and it's gone.

    Close Customize Toolbar.

    Thanks guy. It's good to know what it is, but why it's necessary to have shortcuts there is beyond me. Doesn't look clean at all.
    Oh well, who knows I might have a use of it in the future. I just thought Lion has crapped out on me. LOL
