Recover from a constantly restarting Finder loop
Authored by: sphen on Mar 14, '06 07:16:06AM

this usually has to do with a corrupt character that the finder cannot display in the desktop. for some reason it does not effect the finder when it is in a folder other than desktop. alot of times there will be a .textClipping file that is causing the constant crash loop, do you have one of those?

the other root of the problem is many times Fonts as well. have you removed some fonts from the /System/Library/Fonts folder? Some of the asian fonts are actually needed to prevent finder crashing when it encounters this bad character as well...
