Does any one know how to fix an error like this?

Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000102e50cf2

My Finder keeps crashing after updating my Mac this morning. I've tried TotalFinder but this also crashed as if it was Finder.

Any ideas?

The tickets shows OS X 10.8.3… but my Terminal shows this:

jycr753:~ hakunamatata$ sw_vers -productVersion

jycr753:~ hakunamatata$ system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType

    System Software Overview:

      System Version: OS X 10.8.5 (12F45)
      Kernel Version: Darwin 12.5.0
      Boot Volume: hakunamatata
      Boot Mode: Normal
      Computer Name: jycr753
      User Name: jycr753 (hakunamatata)
      Secure Virtual Memory: Enabled
      Time since boot: 2:01

I've also tried looking at kextstat to make sure that I dont have any kernel extensions, and it all looks fine… Log error

  • I would be helpful to see the full error log. but try this if you find the "External Modification Warnings:" Thread creation by external task. Are you using DropBox or a Finder extension like TotalFinder? Remove them.

    Do you have the following in the log "External Modification Warnings" "Thread creation by External task" ? Also you said you did use the TotalFinder ?

    Thank you. I downloaded your log and you do have the External Modification Warnings .... in it (at the top)

    Just try to remove the Dropbox (for now) and restart without it. Sorry I have to leave, be back in 2 hours, good luck!

The solution for this was actually google drive, its kernel extension was creating conflicts with finder if the icon was showing in the status bar.
