HELP!!! Every time I go to shutdown my finder unexpectedly quits. If someone can shed some light on this issue I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

please tell more about the circumstances;

- what the system specs (which os, which computer)
- when did the problems appear (did you install something before they appeared)?

I have that same thing when I access my External HD. When I unmount it and close the control panel I must restart or the finder quits. Don't know why and don't really care. After a restart all is OK.
