Every time I open the downloads folder within Finder, my computer freezes up. Not sure why.

Anyone have any ideas?

Also, how can I "remotely" send all downloaded files to the trash since I can't get into the Download folder without freezing up?

By freezing up the cursor turns to the rainbow wheel as if it's processing something.

I use OS X10.5.8 Build 9L31a
QUOTE Thanks
