    Hello, guys! I have installed OS X Yosemite there's a few months, but yesterday, all the system broken up and nothing's working properly.

    My machine:
    - MacBook Aluminium Late 2008, OS X Yosemite Public Beta 3 (updated a few days ago)

    What's not working:
    - Finder only shows and empty window with the "Window" in header, resetting prefs, restarting, rebooting, loading in safe mode is not able to fix this.
    - Mac App Store has something that seems to a bootloop (if it's applicable to an app) - I open it, and it shows me a lollipop and loads nothing, so I can't download Mavericks.
    - Safari is completely dead, Chrome hangs up sometimes, but, finally, I have Firefox
    - Desktop is also not available (lollipop).
    - Parallels Desktop for Windows, using which I can move and rename files to try to launch them also hangs up, like MAS.
    - The BootCamp partition is not showing in the startup menu.
    - I can't download another file manager, because all the time those are packed in .tar.gz or .dmg-s, but Finder is not working.
    - A half of all my apps is pretty... dead.

    It's a very strange situation, may be the first here :) But please, help :apple:

    Dunno from where these strange flaws come ....

    I think the best would be to make a new, clean Install of Yosemite.

    Try to get the Installer from the App-Store again, backup all your data and make a clean Install then.
