    Hi Franc, 

    Sorry for the inconvenience. 
    May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces according to the article: 
      http://support.cocoatech.com/kb/installation-and-compatibility/how-...
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site
    3. Copy zipped app to the Applications folder
    4. Unzip it into the Apps folder and launch

    Let me know how it goes. 

    Best Regards, 
    Jordan

    And yes, I've done all that twice as well. No luck.

    Ok guys, I've had it. PF8 is the absolute worst upgrade I've seen in 10 years of being a registered Pathfinder user, and paying for upgrades for every version since I started.

    I've had to revert to PF7, as v8 is just too unstable and problematic.

    Yeah, Path Finder 8 hangs my system every single day. Cannot open Messages app frequently & then once that happens I can't Quit Path Finder or even restart / shutdown my system. It seems to hang one thing and then it's like all my other apps start to hang one by one.

    Delete the pathfinder again and again. Delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist again and again. Restart, reboot, ....and then the other day....just a blank window.

    Hi, 

    Have you tried using AppCleaner? As the instructions above suggest. 

    Looking forward to your reply.
