    Check the Crash report or check the Console in Applications > Utilities. What have you done to your system lately? No operating system should/will/would malfunction like this unless the user did something to it.

    The only thing I can think of is a program called Docker. Would that do anything?

    If you can open terminal type, killall Finder, Will restart it.

    Never force quit finder. Sometimes it doesn't restart. But a killall Finder should get it working again.

    Command Line always saves the day, even for little tasks like downloading files when the Browser just doesn't cut it.
