Please delete the font cache on your system by restarting the computer in safe mode.
you can do this by holding down the shift key when restarting the machine.
this would launch the computer in safe mode.
once its started in safe mode then restart the machine in normal m,ode(Without the shift key) and then check the results

To move files by connecting your Mac directly to your PC:
  1. Connect your Mac to your PC using a standard Ethernet cable.
  2. Make sure that both computers are turned on.
  3. In the Finder on your Mac, choose Connect to Server from the Go menu to open the window.
  4. Type your PC's network address in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:
    • smb://DNSname/ShareName
    • smb://IPaddress/ShareName
  5. Click Connect.
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to enter your PC's workgroup name, user name, password, and the volume or folder you wish to access.
  7. Your PC volume should appear on your Mac Desktop.
  8. Open the volume and drag and drop files directly from it to anywhere on your Mac.
  9. When finished, drag your PC volume to the Trash to unmount it.

Finder was accadental deleted from the computer and wount start


Unfortunately, you cannot do anything without the original CDs. You can take it to the Apple Store and see if they will reinstall Mac OS 9 for you. Or, you can buy the newer Mac OS, but on a computer that was running Mac OS 9, I doubt OS X will work.

The last solution is installing Linux as your operating system.

Desktop icons disappear every few seconds and ....


It might be linked to Stuffit. Do you guys have Stuffit installed? There is a preference called Stuffit AVR (Archive Via Rename): In your system preferences go to the bottom and click on the Stuffit AVR option. Click the Stuffit AVR tab on the left, and click the "STOP" button. This should do the trick. For some reason this is cycling through our desktop/finder and causing so much of the frustration when you update your quicktime.

If that did not help or if you do not have Stuffit, try turning off Affloat.

Let me know if this helped!

Finder relaunch itself every minute


I do not know if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me.

It seems all to be linked to Stuffit and a preference called Stuffit AVR (Archive Via Rename): In your system preferences go to the bottom and click on the Stuffit AVR option. Click the Stuffit AVR tab  on the left, and click the "STOP" button. This should do the trick. For some reason this is cycling through our desktop/finder and causing so much of the frustration since this update.
Hope this helps!

Finder relaunch itself like every minute


A finder crash -- periodic blink of the desktop and then a rebuild of the icons and maybe an open window comes back up -- is often due to incompatible add-ons... programs that used to work with an older version of the system or finder, but now don't.  We've seen this happen with the likes of 'magicmenu', stuffit avr, and other apps.  You can test this by going into your system preferences to the login items and removing all login items,, then reboot your computer.  Does the periodic flash of the desktop (or Finder windows) stop?  Then something you deactivated was conflicting with the Finder.
And you can't rule out a corrupt Finder preference file (look for com.apple.finder.plist, toss it, and reboot).

Photo transfer


When you connect your phone to the mac via the USB does the phone appear on your desktop?

If the phone does mount on the desktop the easiest way to get them on and manage them is with iphoto (or ilife if installed) use the app to import the files. When importing find the phone and look for the images folder.

The manual way.
The mac should pick up most phones and see them as a hard drive. If it does mount on the desk top you can then open the drive and find the images. They are usually in the picture or image folder.

If you cannot see the drive on your desktop and you have bluetooth on your mac. you could transfer the images via bluetooth. Slower but they will get there. You'll just have to pair the devices.

As 'git1' said. If all that fails you'll need to let us know what make the phone is.
