My Powerbook is acting up. (OSX)

Well, lately my finder has been using WAY too much CPU. My "top" command in terminal is this:

PID COMMAND %CPU TIME #TH #PRTS #MREGS RPRVT RSHRD RSIZE VSIZE

If i quit it by clicking the desktop and command-q'ing, my CPU useage drops significantly. I tried restarting, but it didnt work. Any suggestions?
