Fixing a Slow Loading Finder on Mavericks

Fixing a Slow Loading Finder on Mavericks

This is the solution that worked for me and I’m going to thank users Posthumous and Snaggletooth for their work, which I am copying here for anyone else needing help:
1. Open Terminal

2. Type the following command

sudo nano /etc/auto_master

3. Press Enter/Return

4. Use the keyboard down arrow to move your cursor to the command:

/net -hosts -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid

  and add a # to the front so it reads:

#/net -hosts -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid

5. Press control + X to exit

6. Press Y to save

7. Press Enter

8. Close Terminal

9. Reboot
