When I try to rebuild the desktop, I am still getting the Finder Unexpectedly Quit error. This is happening with my iMac G3. I'm running OS 9.2.2 and 10.4.3. I followed all the directions in the Apple Help file here:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2344

but it is not rebuilding the desktop at all. Every time I do I get that error message at startup even with extensions off. Is something wrong with my computer?

1.) iMac G3 - HD: 55.9 GB, OS: 10.4.11 Tiger & Mac OS 9.2.2, Memory: 256 MB, 2.) Intel iMac HD: 595.85 GB OS: 10.5.7 Leopard Memory: 4 GB

    Nevermind. I figured out the solution. I ran Disk First Aid and it showed a lot of catalog problems so I just clicked Repair. When I tried to rebuild the desktop again, it worked. But if anyone else gets this error they can look at this thread.
