Recover from a constantly restarting Finder loop
Authored by: Zeitkind on Mar 15, '06 04:55:42AM

Another reason for Finder crahsing constantly is a another damaged .plist. Had this problem on several Macs before. If this hint doesn't work, try to remove
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist

To the fonts problem: I had so many problems with fonts removed by Users. It not only affects OS X itself, but also other programs if their fonts are removed. Filemaker 8, Office 2004 etc. tend to crash with debug entries (from crash-log) like

Thread 0 Crashed:
0 com.apple.CoreFoundation 0x9073fba4 CFRetain + 60
1 com.apple.CoreText 0x90235b08 TFontCascade::InitParams() + 324
2 com.apple.CoreText 0x90235bac TFontCascade::CreateFallback(__CTFont const*, __CFString const*, CFRange) const + 52

If you see simular entries, check if all standard fonts are installed.
