    Well, does the iMac boot when you take the mouse adapter off?

    I Guess thats the real question here. If it does, try a new mouse. If not, someone will probably have a solution for you (not me) who knows more about Kernel Panics.

    Good Luck

    I certainly can't hurt you with the kernal panics but just for clarification, what kind of Mac do you have?

    Edit: Didn't notice that you posted the type above.

    'pointer' has nothing to do with a mouse.

    You have some b0rked software on your machine.

    You could spend a lot of time tracking it down, or

    0) Make sure you unplug every external device other than your mouse and keyboard. If you have aa wired mouse and keyboard, use those instead of wireless

    1) boot from your OSX CD, run Disk Utility from the Utility or Installer Menu at the top and do a Repair Disk. If that fails, call Apple or your dealer.
    Presuming it completes OK,

    2) Do an Archive and Install of OSX.

    Then test the machine. If it still keeps panicing, then

    3) Creat a new user in System Preferences: Users and restart the machine, log in as your new user. If it works now, then it is some preference or program specific to your main User account.

    If it doesn't work, then you probably have a hardware probem: Hard drive, RAM, Logic board or Peripheral. Call Apple if the machine is under warranty.

    Thanks

    As has been said, the mouse point and the bad pointer have nothing to do with each other. Sometimes, though, devices attached to the computer cause problems. You've eliminated that with the mouse transceiver.

    Did you buy extra RAM for the computer? If so, you should remove it and see if the problem continues.

    If you haven't used Software Update to download all of the latest fixes, you should do that next. Continue to use Software Update until it finds nothing to update.

    CanadaRAM mentions (#1) using the installation disk of Mac OS X to launch Disk Utility to check and/or repair the hard drive. You should also check the permissions while you're doing that.

    If, after all that, there is still a problem, you might consider re-installing Mac OS X because there are sometimes problems but it's generally unnecessary. It depends on whether you've used some customisation/hack that has messed inside the operating system itself. Your mouse driver (the software connecting the hardware to Mac OS X) could be causing a problem, also. Make sure you're using the latest version and that it's compatible.
