I have just updated my Macbook(late 2009) to Lion OS X 10.7.5 and when I go to logout or shut down the Finder icon starts jumping. I click on it and a popup window says, "The Finder can't quit because some operations are still in progress"  - "You can cancel or stop the operations, and then try again". I go to the Dock and everything is closed. Wait! I go to Mac App Store and iTunes Stores. I log out of both of them. I try to log out and shut gown again and Finder still won't let me. Same message.


Is anyone else out there experiencing this. Can anyone help me? What is still running? How to find out what is still running? I dreaded this ever since the announcement of ML.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
