All of a sudden my computer will work find, except for the Finder. The fan spins up and looking at Activity Monitor it shows the CPU % at 102% with 10 threads and 1.19 GB of real memory.
Using the Finder is painfully slow. I will try to double click a folder and then have to wait for a few minutes at times for the window to change. Drag and drop is impossible.
The interesting thing is that while this is going on, the rest of the computer works fine.
This is a MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2011) 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 with 8GB of RAM running 10.8.4
I've tried repairing permissions and disk with Apple's utility after rebooting with cmd + R.
What am I missing?
