I just love useful replies to forum posts. Here's a hint folks if your answer is search google, please do the gentlemanly thing and not reply. Because if that was the answer to every question and nobody gave an actual answer google wouldn't have any silly results! LOL!1one

Quit all applications. Make sure you are in Finder Menu>Go and hold down Alt/option to reveal LIbrary. click Library and look for Preferences. Open that folder and look for com.apple.finder.plist and its Lockfile. Drag that out of the desktop. If it cant copy there then drag that on documents. After creating a copy and deleting tha file under Preferences Restart and try to copy on your desktop.

Have a burr up your arse? Especially poignant since you're not the OP. You need some serious counselling for being too touchy. FWIW, searching these forums and the web is step one in troubleshooting any problem. The OP did ask for ANY, so I gave him one. BTW, since he's not returned, apparently he found a fix for his month-old issue. I'm surprised you didn't chastise the OP for not posting a follow-up.27" i7 iMac SL, Lion, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2

actually I suppose it is google's fault since yours was the third such answer in its first page results

The answer of "search google for" is not terribly helpful for a frustrated user and verges on condensending. The user is having to cope with a buggy Mac OS X and looking for help, likely not technical and likely frustrated.
An alternative way of providing guidance and leadership:
What I did was search for "error 8058" and "mac" and found a number of answers, none of which directly answers your question. ("Error -8058") I did not see anything that directly addressed your issue (from above)
"try to copy a file or folder to my desktop even though I can create a new folder on desktop. I have tried copying a single file and folder with multily files in it but still getting same error"
But I did find something that might be related. Someone else had a problem deleting a file and getting the same error code. They trashed their finder preferences (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist) and it fixed things. Unfortunately Apple hides your library folder now so you need to:
- switch to Finder
- hold the "option" key on the keyboard
- Click on the "Go" menu
- Select "Library" (hidden if the option key is not down)
- locate the folder "Preferences"
- locate the file "com.apple.finder.plist"
- move said file to trash
- log out
- log in
- test to see if fixed
This came from Mac OS X Forums which is rather messy to read but here is the original (http://bit.ly/S7dNQB).
For dilligence sake I tried a site directed search for "8058 error" in Apple's knowledge base (KB) (http://bit.ly/S7cxNF) and found nothing useful there. Infact, the information on this error appears to be scrubbed from the KB

I agree that searching google should be everyone's first choice but look at it from another perspective.
I had this exact same problem today when I got into work. I searched google like a good techie and the very first link was this thread. Quite a circular condundrum, eh? The answer to my google search was to search google!?!
That's the reason why replying to a thread with search google is a waste. Saying 'search google' is fine but not in isolation. Provide an answer for the next person who did search google.

I have tried deleting plist lockfiles from preference folder and that has some what worked for me. It is bit hard if you have machine bound to AD and multiple users are experiencing this problem because you might have to go to each and individual user's profile and delete all the lock files in order to fix this problem.
Or you could delete all the lock files in your default profile and then delete user profiles. This way when they do login they will new sets of preference and plist lock files should not be there anymore.

Glad it worked
