OK i imagine i'm not the first one to ask this question but the FINDER of my imac dvse (os 8.6 in french, IE 5, OE 5.5, Norton,...) is ALWAYS freezing !!!
It's freezing even when i'm not touching it at all!!!
I read many things about it but all the operations i did (like deleting the finder prefs and restarting the mac)are unsuccessfull ! I also have sometimes error type 2 or 11 which is very annoying too!

Anyone got an idea to help me here.
I always thought mac os was very stable, i can't believe it...

Please help.

Good vibes from france.

Exactly what are the errors? 2 and 11 or -2 and -11 or what?
Try zapping the PRAM - download TechTool 1.21 (freeware) from here.
Also be sure to delete the MacOS Preferences as well as Finder Preferences.
Your problem is probably an extension/control panel prob... startup with MacOS All extension set (using extensions manager - hold space bar at startup to access or go to Control Panels), and see if the prob still occurs. If it doesn't, then by process of elimination find the culprit.
If it still does occur, report back here.
Also, exactly what machine are you running? RAM etc? Have you installed anything lately? If so, disable anything to do with that before the trial-and-error approach.
You should upgrade to OS 9.04 - that may well solve the problem.
