Finder in Mac OSX 10.4.8 keeps freezing
Posted on 2006-11-30
My Finder keeps freezing on my Macintosh, and I have to force-quit several times before it un-freezes. Sometimes, I have to restart my computer several times before it fixes, and it's just becoming a huge hassle for me. I'm wondering if I can do something to fix it for good, or if - worst case scenario - my board is just bad, and what that means.
I've got a dual 2 GHz Power PC G5, it's only about 1 year old, I'm running Mac OSX 10.4.8, I have 4 GB DDR SDRAM, and my graphic card is an ATI Radeon 9600. I keep up on all of my software updates and use an external hard drive to store most of my files.
This is my work computer, and I am using it every day for about 9-10 hours, I am a graphic designer, so I'm constantly creating and using large Photoshop files, etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and my bosses will thank you, too!
