macosPlus discussed this recently i think..
i just loaded up my quicksilver 933 for the first time in about a year..
and ive got the infamous finder crash at startup.. i hve to cmd-option escape out of it everytime i boot
is there any "fix" for this? to make it happen automatically without having to do it manually? ie:script?
i vaguely remember fndign a solution for this but the memory eludes me at this time
can anyone jog my memory with any pertinent details?? anyone know of a solution to this?

If you drop into MacsBug, maybe it will tell you the name of the offending process/extension. Conflict Catcher could also help. It would be way easier if someone could just tell you the solution. I am not that someone  :(

my favourite cure for any obscure crashes is to shut off, disconnect the powerline, then shut on/off to unload PSU and onboard caps a couple of times, reconnect power and start again.
It even saved the infamous 'sad mac' hardware failure a couple of times.
