    Installed some software today to convert some video files. Everything was fine, then about 5 mins after installation of video converter finder now loads and then quits constantly every second or two. Tried booting in safe mode but it still does it.

    any ideas for a somewhat n00b to macs?

    ibook with os x 10.4.5

    if it still happens in safe boot you could try repair disk altho doughtful that would fix it but archive and install should fix it

    delete the preference file (finder.plist) from your library and see if it goes away. you could also try to uninstall the program that seems to have fucked it up.
