Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will do my best to assist you.
Can you open Utilities -> Terminal please
I'm sorry, I can't open utilities, I can´t open finder, and i don't have utilities on the dock
⌘Space, enter Ter, then enter
ok it worked, thanks...
Once the terminal is open, type the command below exactly as below:
find ~ -type f -name .DS_Store -delete
Check if finder opens now
no, it says it can't be opened... and then -10810
Can you type the exact message it is saying
The application Finder.app can't be opened.
What version is the Mac OS?
Can you tell me if the error 10810 appeared for the first time after we did the command on terminal?
no... it happened right after I rebooted, after the 7 hours of "restart" after the software update
Please type the command below in terminal then press Enter
Did it open Finder or return a result on terminal?
it opened finder
the "forced quit" finder windows are still there
and the beach ball appears
Type: sudo killall Finder Dock
After you type that, please update with the results.
Are there any external drives attached?
Please remove the external drives
Now in terminal type the command below:/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -seed -rfv -all user, system, local
What did it say on the terminal after you typed that command?
Can you now restart the system and try to launch the finder again
ok.. and how can I reach you again?
