I installed Leopard a few days ago and ever since then my laptop (PowerBook G4) is "unable to find application "Finder"". What do I do?

Hmm okay. I just hope it doesn't happen again. Should I go back to my old OS? I had Tiger before.

You should be fine with Leopard, it really does just sound like a weird installation glitch.

It's not perfect, but give apple a week or two to release 10.5.1 and the most grievous issues should be fixed.

Did you do a simple Upgrade to Leopard from Tiger? If so this time try an Archive and Install.

I re-installed Leopard TWICE and it still is having the same exact problem. Should I go back to Tiger or what?
