See the Trim Enabler FAQ, The question Recovering from stop sign on boot screen might help you: Recovering from stop sign on boot screen For those who are stuck on the grey boot screen, here’s how you get back into OS X: ...

One thing to check is the Extensions preference pane in System Preferences. Check whether there are any extensions listed for Finder. If so try disabling them by unticking the box beside them and seeing if the Finder behaves any better then. Another thing to check is Console. It can be a bit daunting at first but filter it to Finder related log entries ...
