Buggy finder OS x 10.5.8
October 8, 2009 9:43 AM   Subscribe

Buggy finder in OX 10.5.8 Recently my finder has gotten really buggy - even though I have disabled spaces and expose they will spontaneously launch. Also when I open folders in the finder they will flash repeatedly before stopping and letting me click into them. I also have a hard time renaming files by clicking into the file name on the finder. Does anyone have any ideas??? Thanks!!

do you have another mouse and keyboard to try?

sounds like you might have a stuck key or mouse button

Sounds like a key may be stuck on your keyboard. What machine is it? If it's not a laptop, plug the mouse directly into the USB port without the keyboard and see what happens.

Could be a bad mouse wire too possibly. Do you have a spare mouse you could try?

Definitely a mouse or keyboard problem.
