Mac Osx Slow Finder Mavericks Beach Ball Party

Mavericks: Slow Finder

So, I recently bought two new MacPros, both came with Mavericks. Finder has been acting up, being extremely sluggish, and beach balling all the time.

Checking the console app, I saw tons of this messages:

XPC error messaging Connection invalid

Fixed it by going to: Finder > View > Show View Options and turning off Show Icon Preview

Something else that was causing troubles was the fact that a new Finder window shows All My Files by default, changed that to a less populated directory.
