About the 3rd or 5th time after I relaunch finder or reboot and choose a new folder, the finder windows presents this image

enter image description here

Once this happens I can no longer interact with the window besides dragging it.I recently repaired disk permissions, and it is still happening. I am using the latest version of OSX Mavericks. Any ideas on what is going on?

  • what are the 3d party icons – Ruskes Apr 23 '14 at 22:32
  • Those are just apps and an automator script to clear out svn internals that i've pinned to the toolbar. its a standard feature of Finder. I've had those there for years with no problems. wired.com/2013/10/finder-toolbar-app-shortcut – Travis Beck Apr 24 '14 at 1:23

Looks like I found the problem. I created a new blank user and logged in there and it didn't happen, so I figured the problem had to be software related. Turns out it was an application that recently updated called "display maid" which was causing the problem. After i disabled that app, everything was fine.

  • so it was a 3d party after all :) – Ruskes Apr 24 '14 at 7:05
