The story before the problem:
I tried to defrag my MacBook (core2duo) with Techtool Pro and it failed, then MacBook didn't boot in normal or safe mode.
Disk utility reported error but refused to correct it, fsck -fy in single mode didn't help too and failed before finishing the repair process.
I used Disk Warrior 4.1 to repair the hard disk and it did the job pretty good and after repair MacBook could be boot again.
Now another problem happened and keeps occurring.

The problem:
After finally booting the MacBook I found that I can't use the system because there is no menu bar, dock appears and disappear in just second repeatedly and desktop icons too. (also I noticed that desktop background has been changed to OS X 10.5 default)

So I think that problem is finder crash (that cause also dock crash) that is happening in only 2 seconds again and again and makes the system unusable even for troubleshooting purposes.

What I did before this post (and problem exist yet!):
1- Safe boot
2- cmd+option+f+o to reset
3- cmd+option+p+r to pvram reset
4- running disk utility from leopard dvd and repaired permissions. (also it reports hdd is ok)
5- made another user and logged in to new user,
surprisingly the new user works just fine and without any problem. (cause I thought it should be a system wide issue)
6- deleted finder .plist
7- moved the .plist folder of old user (after I found that it wouldn't help it has been returned)
8- reinstalled the 10.5.2 combo update

these steps didn't solve the problem. and yet my old user keeps crashing on finder and the new one is works pretty good.

If there is any way to solve this problem (except OS reinstall or deleting the bad user and transfer to new one) please guide me.
the problem is I really don't want to deal with all the data transfer and customization process again! I have all my data in the old user and yes I can transfer all data and files from there but I will be happy if I can do anything else.

here is the log file I found for these crash:
(not in this regard, but amazingly I noticed that the crash log reports finder version 10.5.3!)

I'd say something is corrupt in your home folder. Give this a try for preference files.

When all else fails, try everything!
