comment How does the Finder refresh in OS X Mountain Lion?
This doesn't fix all problems though. I'm looking at an NFS share in XtraFinder, where on the server I changed the name of one of the folders. The old name still remains in Finder. Terminal shows the new name. Refresh does not help. Getting XtraFinder to restart Finder for me, I get a directory listing with the correct name. A second after I click that folder, Finder changes the name back to the wrong one AS I'M WATCHING. FFS, I hate this f***ing Finder. Always been absolutely useless with network shares since my first OS X, Lion. NEVER EVER WORKED PROPERLY!

comment How do I prevent OS X from automatically installing app files on my drive
Thanks for the input, coding friend :) The link I've included in the comment to my OP links further to info on how Services are registered with .app bundles. It seems these services are automatically registered when the system scans the .app folders. I reviewed the uninstall directions for BetterZip which only mentioned deleting the preferences under ~/Library. Of course, as I never installed or ran it, I don't have these files. There aren't any in /Library. It seems the only litter are these Services. I'm working on how to get rid of them. This is horrible. I had stuff like CS in that folder.

@Gerry, well that's what I'm suggesting at. However, I have not run it. Which shows that something besides harmless indexing of *.app folders on the hard drive, regardless of location, is going on. And this is what I would like to turn off.
