it appears my finder will not launch after I upgraded to Mojave. It is always unresponsive. My system cpu load is constantly around 75% also.

I am unable to relaunch it even if I do a force quit from application monitor. Any ideas?

Also chrome will not render a webpage. Firefox and Safari work fine.

It turns out was Google Drive File Stream syncing issue. I removed that and cpu is back to normal... https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8555291 no eta from Google though on when will be fixed?

a temporary work around by forcing Finder to reload the extensions needed for the context menu by opening terminal and issuing a

killall Finder
