    Ok so i started my mac up today, OSX starts up fine, except for the fact that there isnt a hard drive icon on the desktop, and finder wont start...you can click finder on the dock, and it wont do anything....go to force quit, and finder isnt there either. If you try to open up any type of finder window it wont work.

    Heres what I have tried so far,

    Repair Disk
    Repair Permissions
    Restart
    Keep off for some time
    Create New Account
    Delete Mac finder PLIST
    Thank you for all of your help...
