    I don't see any 3rd party extensions in my case. The list is blank after running the script.

    I have the same problem with other apps such as Text and Preview. They work for a while after a restart and problem resumes.

    Any other trouble shooting tips.

    I tried the script and got the same non-result.  I've tried multiple times, each time confirming that I've pasted exactly as it was posted here but no results at all.  Anybody have any clues about what I'm doing wrong?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi William,

    Since upgrading to Mountain Lion last week I'm having the same 4-5 times a day kernel panic, drivin' me bonkers. Ran that command you offered and see that I have 2 programs w/the extensions:

    at.obdev.nke.LittleSnitch

    com.sophos.kext.sav

     

    Do I need to uninstall these programs to see if this is the reason I'm crashing so much? Hope that's not a dumb question.

    FWIW, I quit using Safari and only use Chrome now and my crashes stopped.

    I had the same approach, but it didn't solve my problem, I'm in Firefox now, the only remaining browser before starting using Lynx.

     

    What I did that seems to be working in the last hour is as described in the post of Juls on Sep 19, 2012 10:45 AM    (in response to Richard Tamesis)

    After this, removing the all files from Finder bookmark, Finder at 68 Mb only.

     

    Maybe I'll try Chrome again now.

    Safari with the Safari and Web contents process is .... complicated because Web content consumes near >= 2GB every time I've bee using Safari since the Upgrade to ML on launch day.

     

    Regards.

    I tried this and got

     

    com.DataRobotics.driver.iSCSIInitiator (1.4.31) <95 4 3 1>

     

    But where is it?  I looked in /System/Library/Extensions and it is not there.  How can I find this file?

     

    Thanks

    My Finder has been freezing several times a day for a few weeks.  I tried the third party extension thing but that did not fix it.  Also found and removed MacFuse, someone mentioned that.  I never had this trouble before -- is it a problem within ML itself?

     

    Is there anything I can do to find out what might be the cause?  Some system log or something?

     

    Thanks

  • Bob Sabiston Level 3 Level 3

    I have learned that if I just wait for the Finder, like 5 minutes or more, it will usually return from the 'spinning wheel of death'.  Anyone know how to find out just what it is doing all that time?  Activity Monitor says it has 9 threads, 98% of the CPU, and about 300MB of memory.

     

    My system doesn't have a lot of memory, 4GB, and I have a few apps running.  Could it be doing some kind of housekeeping that causes it to become inaccessible for over 5 minutes?

     

     

    Thanks

    Excellent, thanks

    Hi William

     

    What do I do once I've located these extensions. Mine came back as

    com.vara.driver.VaraAudio

    com.seagate.driver.PowSecDriverCore

     

    which would make sense, since the freezing happened once I plugged my external Seagate hardrive in

     

    Thanks

    Paul

    This still happens all the time.   I haven't found any solution that works -- never before in all my time of having a Mac have I had a problem where the Finder regularly freezes.
