    you dont need the terminal, activity monitor can do this by finding the process, and quitting it. it will relaunch on its own. but since im a UNIX nut:

    ps -clx

    find process called "Finder", and its corresponding Process ID (PID). then

    kill [insertPID]
    note: dont input brackets
