Finder crashes every minute after QT 7.2 Update

I just updated to QuickTime 7.2 this morning, only to reboot and have Finder restarting frequently, about 2 minutes 30 seconds or 1 minutes 30 seconds (exactly, and those are the only two differences between time of crashes I've seen) apart from each crash.
I've tried reinstalling QT 7.2, uninstalling everything like Divx and Flip4Mac, went into the console and did a kill on all nonessential processes, and it still happens. I'm really at my wits end, and I'm getting frustrated.
If I need to post my Finder.crash.log from the Console please let me know.
Thank you,

Sorry its taken me so long to get back in touch. Below is my crash log. I'll also be trying to remove Stuffit Deluxe, but I'm kind of surprised that the problem is only occurring now, as it's been working fine for years.

  • Finder crashes every minute

    My desktop icons and finder windows keep refreshing about every min. This is annoying. The dock does not refresh. I opened the terminal window and did a top to monitor Finder. When this happens Finder process is gone and a new one is started (there is a new PID every time - must be a crash).

    I uncheked "Show file sync status icons and right click menu" and that looks like it stop finder from crashing.
    Everytime the icons and finder windows disappeared I looked at top processes in the terminal window or Activity Monitor and there was a new PID for finder everytime after the flickering.
    I turned it back on and Icon disappeared for good, it looked like Finder stop responding right-away. I relaunched Finder, but it did not do it anymore. I when back to Google Drive preferences and "Show file sync status icons and right click menu" was unchecked. Try it check and apply again and Finder restarted and
    "Show file sync status icons and right click menu" still uncheked.
    I reported the problem to Google. I sent them sync_log.log file in
    ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Drive folder.
    The case reference number is 5-7419000002060

  • Finder crashes every few minutes.

    I'm working on a 2007 MacBook Pro 17".
    I installed Mavericks, but noticed that an important application wasn't working on it, so I downgraded (from a Time Machine backup) back to Mountain Lion.
    Ever since, Finder crashes every few minutes, making it unable to use my Mac.
    Can somebody please help?
    That would mean a lot to me.
    You can find one of the crash reports on my Dropbox as a .txt-file.

    Try deleting the Finder .plist.
    You need to look in your user Library/Preferences for the .plist.Either hold down the option key while using the Finder “Go To Folder” command and select your user Library in your home folder or use the Finder “Go To Folder” command and enter ~/Library/Preferences/  Move the .plist to your desktop.
    Re-launch Finder by loggin out/in and test. If it works okay, delete the plist from the desktop.
    If the same, return the .plist to where you got it  from, overwriting the newer ones.
    If you prefer to make your User library permanently visible, use the Terminal command found below.
    Show User Library
    You might want to bookmark the command. I had to use it again after every update. I have also been informed that if you drag the user library to Finder it will remain visible.

  • Finder resets every minute

    Last week I upgraded my ibook from 10.4.8 to 10.4.9 via software update. i think i also updated quicktime and iTunes at the same time. After doing this I began experiencing a problem i've never seen before in which the finder 'resets' every minute or so, regardless of what program i am running. the desktop items disappear for a few moments and when they reappear, i'm "in" the finder and have to click on the window of the progam i'm in to continue using the program (e.g. if i'm typing in Word or Mail, i have to click on that doc in order to continue typing, something i've done 3 times since beginning this message). I downloaded 10.4.9 combo and installed that. no change. i thru away the system and finder preferences in my library. no change, and the finder prefs renews itself at every 'reset'. there is no 'finder reset' option from the finder dock icon like there once was--the only option is "hide". Any suggestions?

    I suspect the magic word is "StuffIt"--for some reason its various add on goodies frequently have unfortunate effects on the Finder.
    Restart and hold down the Shift key as soon as you hear the startup chime. This will boot you into Safe Mode, which will repair the disk, clean a couple of caches, and disable ALL third party startup items (and a few of Apple's too). The start will take longer than normal as it does all this. The Finder should now work normally, and you can start looking for Stuffit add ons: check here:
    "/Users/yourname/Library/Contextual Menu Items"
    "/Library/Contextual Menu Items"
    If you find something from StuffIt in either location, drag it to your Desktop. Also launch System Preferences, go to Accounts and click the Login Items tab. If there is something in there from StuffIt click on it to select, then click the minus button at the bottom. Now restart normally and see if the Finder is working correctly.

  • The dock crashes +/-5 minutes after reboot

    As of yesterday, the dock simply crashes +/- 5 minutes after reboot.
    I've been running SL successfully since the day it came out, without any problems.
    I did upgrade an application, DockStar and feel that's the culprit here, although I have been running a demo version of it successfully.
    If I go to system preferences and choose Dock it takes a while before the dock pane shows up and with default settings, and it also acts very slowly when changing settings. If I change the settings and then close the system preferences and then reopens it then my settings have disappeared.
    And the bigger problem is that the Dock can not be seen (and it is not hidden at any of the monitor edges either).
    How I can restore the dock?

    I just did it myself, and it did not change anything related to your accounts or what's in your Inbox, but the Mail windows size went to the default size and look. It did says say my "Outbox" has been renamed "Delivered," which is odd because it did not do that before when using Mail in Snow Leopard. If you drag the preference file to the Desktop instead of trashing it, you can put it back if something important is changed in Mail that you want back.
    I just tried moving the Mail preferences file to the Desktop (I also got that odd Outbox/Delivered message), and the Dock indeed doesn't crash now.
    BUT, I did loose all my accounts, so I had to drag the original preference file back.
    Some extra info: The clean generated is only 8KB, while mine is 45KB.
    Another fact: I only started using Mail for the first time after the Snow Leopard upgrade (because I'm an Exchange user), it's not that this has been an upgraded Mail with old accounts or settings in it.

  • Finder crashing and restarting after 10.6.1

    Hi all,
    I just upgraded to 10.6.1 and got a nice little surprise. Finder crashes every time I try to do something. I get two blue screens, then my desktops shows normally, then I click on anything, blue screens again, and the loop goes on and on. I'm booting into the installer disk now to repair disk permissions.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem?
    I'm calling Apple if this doesn't work.

    If your apps functions correctly that way, go to System Preferences >> Accounts >> Login Items, and remove them. Boot normally and test. If not go to ~(yourHome)/Library/Contextual Menu Items and move whatever is there to the desktop. Then do the same with /Library/Contextual Menu Items. Lastly, try moving ~(yourHome)/Library/Fonts to your desktop and restarting.
    Log out/in or restart, if that sorts it start putting items back one at a time until you find the culprit.

    cant find my camera app after the ios 7 update and no airdrop app

    No Airdrop for iPhone 4S. And the Camera should be the same place it was before. Did you try searching Spotlight for it?

  • 10.9.2 - Finder crashes every 5 seconds!!!

    I have a MacPro with 24GB of RAM, 6 core Intel Xeon CPU, 2012 tower.
    After the OSX 10.9.2 upgrade I had issues with the display port output on my graphics card. I resolved that issue temporerilly by using DVI-D and HDMI for both my monitors.
    Today, however, I have an even WORSE fault!
    Pardon my French but I am SERIOUSLY ****** OFF NOW.
    Every Finder crash log says exactly the same thing:
    At first I thought it may be faulty RAM, but I have tried every RAM stick in isolation and it changes nothing. I have also went back down to one monitor and, again, it changed NOTHING. I have no extensions installed; this is 100% RAW
    What can I do to fix this without having to reinstall OSX?
    Thank You.

    I did not say reinstall the OS.  I think your boot HDD is failing.  Disk utility (in your applications/utility folder) can verify the smart status of the drive.  You can access disk utility from your install discs, an install USB, or a bootable clone.
    You need an alternative boot source (not time machine).  The problem you face is the exact reason many of us make install USBs, have install DVDs, or bootable clones.
    If you have none of these, at least try and boot into recovery (hold command R at the chime).  If your HDD is bad this won't help but if it is a file structure error then maybe you can access disk utility this way.

  • Finder crashes every 60 seconds

    Hi there
    I've been going lots of googling the past couple of days but haven't turned up a solution yet...
    Finder crashes and relaunches every minute or so. "Remove the .plugin files and log out/in again" I hear you say. Done, no joy. Tried removing - no joy. I had Stuffit v10 on here, but it's now been completely nuked. Still no biscuit. Console log shows this:

    Machine is g4-1.5GHz powerbook, 1.25GB RAM, 100GB disk, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The error happens when the kb + mouse are switched off too. This seems to have only started happening when I installed the 2006/07 security update. I tried reinstalling that, and then reinstalling 10.4.8 over the top of that, but no cigar.
    Any ideas, anyone?

  • Finder Relaunch every minute

    After I installed the new security update, Finder now relaunches every minute....Can some please offer assistance?

    Hi jazidup911, and a warm welcome to the forums!
    Most likely it's Stuffit AVR, Stop it in System Preferences, though a few others have been implicated...
    One way to test is to Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, Test for action in Safe Mode...
    Reboot, test again.
    If it only does it in Regular Boot, then it is some 3rd party add-on, Check System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items window to see if it or something relevant is listed.
    Also look in these if they exist, some are invisible...

  • Laptop crashes every second after installing Lion. And ideas?

    My laptop is crashing every couple of minutes. I'm relating this issue to lion. I have been facing this problem ever since I installed lion. Also, I noticed that it crashes once I use 2 figures on the track pad and scroll down. Please advice

    Finally figured out that App store is the reason my Mac book pro crashes!  Any suggestions? Shall I return back to snow leopard? cause this problem appeared when i upgraded to lion only.

  • OS 10.4.7 finder crashing every second

    I have the console log and a witness, for those who think I am hallucinating.
    Last night this happened twice. Firefox crashed, and took a couple of open applications with it. Rapidly, the finder crashed, opened again, crashed, opened again, rinse and repeat, the remaining open applications crashed, and the finder opened and crashed repeatedly approximately every second. It was like a slow strobe light. I watched in amazement for a while then powered it off. The apps that phone home and report crashes crashed too, but all crashes were written to the console log (I haven't checked the app logs themselves yet.)
    My son went back to what he was doing, to apologize to the friends he was chatting to, and the whole thing happened again. We powered off and I declared it bed time.
    I started in safe mode this morning and it is OK so far.
    My son thinks the trigger for the initial crash was MSN web messenger running on Firefox and using Japanese language.
    Isn't OS X designed so that when an application crashes that is the only one that crashes and other applications and the system itself are protected? What could be going on here? While my son is waiting for his PC to come back from the repair shop, should I let him chat with his Japanese friends on my Mac or ban him?
    (P.S. I have good reasons to use Firefox not Safari, but that is a different topic.)

    I'm glad there is someone else out there who has seen this. I was worried I would have no cred at all. My son is studying software engineering, and has studied computer science, and stresses his PC to the max when gaming, and he has never seen any computer anywhere crash like that.
    If he asks to use my Mac again, I will make sure all the Japanese fonts are enabled (I have hundreds of fonts, so won't enable them all).
    Add to the weird stuff: an iCal alarm reminding me to put out the garbage stayed open and I was able to close it even with the finder flashing on and off like that. My garbage note was the only thing that survived.

  • Finder crashes every 2 seconds

    hey there...
    i've been having trouble with my computer tonight. my finder crashes literally every two seconds. if i try to open an application it crashes as soon as the finder does. i can't figure out anyway around this and seem to be trapped in an endless cycle of my finder opening and closing.
    any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks in advance.

  • Finder crashes on startup after copying the whole drive

    I've just replaced my old internal HD on my laptop for one that is twice larger. I've used Carbon Copy Cloner while the old disk was still the internal one and the new one was connected via USB. Once it was done, I booted from the new HD via USB to check that everything was OK, and then I swapped drives. After that, when I boot with the new hard drive, Finder crashes on startup and then works fine. That happens only with my user account. If I boot via USB with the old drive, everything it OK.
    Any suggestions of why this may happen?
    Thank you very much!

    It sounds like Carbon Copy Cloner missed a file or two that are necessary for proper booting. Cloning software of various versions have difficulty with metadata, as well as backing up data of files that are open while they are backing up. Backing up while in safe mode or Target Disk Mode avoids some of those issues. Backing up while preventing any system modification software from running at the same time as a backup will also avoid those issues. Ensuring you are using the correct version of the backup software for your system version is also important. If you feel you have followed all these steps and are still having difficulty, contact Carbon Copy Cloner's developer and inform them that you think they have a bug in their software.

  • ITunes crashes a minute after opening the program.

    iTunes crashes within a minute after opening. Went to reinstall and choose the repair option. But it did not work. Just recently their was an update for Microsoft for windows 8-64bit, and I just purchased an iPhone 5c. Can you help?

    Eek, sorry for the multiple posting, I keep trying new things and needing to report back. SO, in those accounts that I thought I'd "fixed," I tried going back in and changing the settings back to the way I like them, i.e. leaving the messages on the server for a week (because sometimes I like to see messags on my iphone too) and as soon as I did that, it started downloading old messages before, i.e. back to the same problem.
    Meaning, there's no workaround for the account I share with my business partner, because the only way I've "fixed" it on my personal accounts is to have mail removed from the server immediately, which is not possible on the accounts I share. (And is kind of a bummer for my personal accounts, too, given that I like to see mail on my iphone too).
    Sorry for info overload, just trying to be helpful and cover all the bases. :-)
