I have Mac OS 10.4. I created a new admin account and every time I search the harddrive, or use spotlight, any open finder windows quit, and no search results show up. I am not sure if this has to do with anything, but I used a series of commands in terminal to hide the user, and I set the permissions so that it was invisible to anyone except that user. I don't understand why that would make spotlight fail though. please help, I can't find anything!
