Recover from a constantly restarting Finder loop
Authored by: merelycurious on Mar 14, '06 07:53:36PM
I run into this all the time when I'm preparing a machine for pre-press use and I strip the system font folder down to bare minimum

Here is a safe (I think) way to reproduce the problem if anyone is interested

1 - goto System-Library
2 - pull a copy of the Fonts folder to the desktop
3 - go back to System-Library-Fonts and delete all but:
Geneva.dfont
Keyboard.dfont
LastResort.dfont
Monaco.dfont
LucidaGrande.dfont
4 - restart
5 - Back on the desktop, double click on Fonts folder there and enjoy the finder restart
6 - can be fixed by moving contents of Fonts folder back to System-Library-Fonts via terminal or
activating the fonts within via Suitcase or Fontexplorer X
