This "Network Neighborhood" icon recently appeared on my Finder's sidebar, pointing to some items I haven't seen before, all of them empty.

  • Procyon is an Apple Time Capsule.
  • Skype is running but why are there two links?
  • 'messenger.live.com' doesn't make much sense; I don't use messenger and it doesn't appear in Activity Monitor or in ps -A.

What would cause the sidebar link to appear in the first place?

MacOS 10.6.8 The most recent Software Update was iTunes to v11.2.1, applied two days ago. I noticed this change in approximately that time-frame - but, iTunes?!

    This isn't the normal Finder. PathFinder, TotalFinder…? – 0942v8653 May 23 '14 at 14:14
  • Indeed - it's TotalFinder running over Finder. – JRobert May 23 '14 at 15:54

    Weird!! I relaunched plain Finder and the sidebar item was gone. I launched TotalFinder again, and it remains gone! – JRobert May 23 '14 at 15:55
