Try starting in Safe Mode and see if the problem still occurs?
Restart holding the "shift" key.
(Expect it to take longer to start this way because it runs a directory check first.)
If this works look in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login items and delete any third party login items (-), you can always add them back with the (+). Don’t just “hide” them by checkmark.

Might be Finder preferences are corrupted ...
Open the Finder. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder
Type or copy paste the following:
Click Go then move the com.apple.finder.plist file to the Trash
See if that makes a difference.

Now this is interesting. If you look at this discussion here on the Forum https://discussions.apple.com/message/23127835#23127835
you'll see that deleting the "plist" is the work-around to solve my problems with Aperture 3 not reading PSD files.
The upgrade to Mavricks and Aperture 3.5 somehow solved that problem, so I'm reluctant to mess around with whatever the "plist" is. What exactly am I doing by deleting it?

Carolyn, I see there is more than one Finder "plist," so which am I deleting?
