Hi Joe. Assuming you noticed I'd said I did perform Repair, then am I to understand that one cannot Repair the disc one boots from?

You can't repair the disk into which you're booted. (When your boot disk is selected in Disk Utility, "Repair Disk" should be greyed out; only "Verify Disk" should be available.)

To repair a disk using Disk Utility you've either got to boot into a different volume or boot from your install disc.

Edit: Alternatively, you can use DiskWarrior or another of its ilk.

Joe, me again. I suppose I've answered my own question. Ran Repair from Install disc. Now, Finder seems to be well again. I am able to locate "Corsiva" files. I can also locate ".ttf" files, now. So that appears to end the Finder saga, at least for now.
Thanks again to everyone who contributed, especially Ganbustein.

Anything on this, yet? Should I start a new thread for this and the other questions posed?

You probably ought to start a new thread for this, but since we're still here, when did you install MacKeeper?

That may be a good place to start looking.

Edit: Oops! Did you reinstall MacKeeper after you reinstalled OS X?

So your Mac is running slower even after the reinstall?
