    For the past few weeks my iMac has been crashing at an alarming rate!!! I'll just be browsing the internet using Safari and CRASH! I was typing my resume in Pages and CRASH! Editing in FCE CRASH! What can I do, this is really scaring me! Not only have my Apps begun to crash, but my whole system has crashed 3 times in the past few weeks! This iMac is only a few months old! What can be done?!

    And why has my name suddenly been changed to 'Luxurious' Josephkyles?!?!?

    Archive and reinstall would be my suggestion

    Well you need your original install cd/DVD. I think you reboot and hold down the c key with the cd in and you go from there

    Try moving your preference files into another folder, see if that helps. Just know that your preferences will have to be reset. The reason this could help is because sometimes preference files can get corrupted, and mess with the application.

    Also try making a new user account to see if it's a corrupt library file in the main one. You could also hold down the shift key while starting OS X to start up in Safe Boot mode. But most probably you'll need to do an archive and install the base system again.
