Are you on a network of any sort? What kinda Internet you got? Cable etc...

Delete Finder and System Preferences, and replace the System File and Finder with versions from a core install you must perform to get decent versions of them. Copying from the CD won't work.

Another quick thought, unrelated to anything else, do you have a CD in the drive? Take it out, and check it out.
Do you have a burner with a blank CD in it?
Same.

have ethernet between two other computers and two printers, dsl
connection w/hub. All has worked properly in that configuration beofre.
Printing and ethernet connections fine. Only my computer affected. ran
profiler, disk first aid and tech tools to optimize. Have burner, but
not connected at this time. odd little problem, while in a program or in
a browser, no noticable problem, except maybe taking Netscape (4.7) a
bit longer to load when gets to "initiating Java" Maybe a virus? Seems
like you might be correct about targeting a system or finder problem.
Thought about running disk warrior but concerned I might screw up
directory-if that;'s the problem with the computer. By the way, thnaks
very much for taking the time to assist.
