I've been having some issues with an iMac running El Capitan. The issue seems to be Finder. I tried leaving it to shut down by itself overnight to no avail.
On occasion I get this message: The screenshot below is Dutch but says something along the lines of:
Your Mac was not shut down because Finder could not be stopped. Please quit ?Finder to continue.
Things I've tried
- I've tried shutting it down with a hard reset (power button and a shutdown command from terminal) and restarting.
- I've tried disk repair in recovery mode,
- I've tried resetting NVRAM.
- I've tried shutting down Finder with the usual suspects: Force Quit,
This last one does something, but definitely not what I expect:
It looks like Finder has quit, it's no longer in the list activity monitor. Relaunching it with terminal command
open . in the user home folder gives the error:
LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -600...
Don't know how to fix it anymore. Any advice?
