If you have started using latest MacBook Pro, you are using latest version of Mac OS X, 10.9. I recently started using Mac OS and it was working fine until I started messing around Applications.
I installed couple of new applications and then I tried to uninstall them by Drag and Drop the Application Icon to Trash Bin from the Applications window. Uninstallation seemed to work until soon after i noticed that all my finder windows are keep refreshing after every minute or so. It was quite annoying experience and I had no idea what was the cause and how to fix it. So i started Googling and came across some posts explaining some solutions different people used. Most common solution was around resetting StuffIt AVR of course in my case didn't exist. So I kept looking and found some posts saying removing the Preference related to Finder Application from the Preferences and finally I was able to fix my problem with the same instructions. However the complete instructions set wasn't there but I managed to try out couple of them. So for the usage of others who has the same issue, i'm documenting the steps.
- Close all the Finder windows using sudo killall Finder command in Terminal
- Go to Preferences from command line. Exact location for Mac OS X 10.9 is ~/Library/Preferences/
- Run the command sudo rm -rf com.apple.finder.plist to delete the Finder preference
- Now restart your Mac Book Pro
These 4 steps has fixed this issue in my case. Even-though I cannot guarantee that this would work for everyone, i suppose it's worthy trying out.
Hope this helps and Kudos to everyone who posted the solution originally!
