Right clicking on an object forces Finder to relaunch - Any Ideas
on Jan 29, 2007 at 2:05:55 pm

Hi There

I started up my machine this morning and finder is doing weird things. Whenever I rightclick on an Icon (all except drive icons) finder relaunches itself.
I have tried my mouse and my wacom pad and it's the same on both.

I have also repaired disk permissions for the main drive but it's still doing it.

Any ideas what I should try next?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,
I had something similar happening to me a while back, both my mouse and tablet started doing "weird" things.
I was able to solve it, just by reinstalling the drivers.
Check the manufacturer's website for the latest drivers.
Good Luck!

Just so you know, I got this sorted.

A guy on Apples forum told me that Stuffit 11 installs a bad context menu item in the library.
I removed this items and everything went back to how it should have been.

Hope that helps someone else.
