    What has happened is, I have been watching content at YouTube in Safari and the computer suddenly freezes, with a continuous looped audio snippet of last approximate half second of the content that was being watched before freezing. Force Quit keyboard shortcut is unresponsive, requiring forced shut down. I have had this happen probably 5 times, with a few times being in the past few weeks and it just happened before I posted this. Any ideas why this has been occurring?

    I would start by uninstalling all the internal plugins, reboot and see if the issue still happens. You have an awful lot of programs running at startup as well that are listed in Launch Agents and Launch Daemons. If the problem does not get resolved by removing the internet plugins then I suggest you start looking at uninstalling the rest.

    How do I manually uninstall those launch agents and daemons, i.e. where do I locate?
