    (I hope this is in the right section...)

    I've read some of the other topics (dated back in 2012) that I came across doing a google search for why I might be having Kernel Panics happening quite frequently. I just had another one and had two-three last Saturday as well. I'm not sure what is going on, the last time I had one was back in 2012 (early) around the time I replaced my battery for expanding and my HD because it had failed on me. I since upgraded the RAM, HD space, installed a new internal fan (replaced the Thermal Paste) and I make sure it is always clean.

    Anyway, I have Snow Leopard, 10.6.8 and I'm on a MacBook Unibody (the early 2009 before they changed from the aluminum casing) and I have a copy of the Panic log. I'm not entirely sure why this keeps happening so if someone (anyone) knows how to read this sufficiently to help that would be amazing!

    Probably not related, but you can download a newer version of Parallels 4. It may not help with the panic, but it won't hurt.
    Links are here:
    What about the Western Digital software you have installed? Can you uninstall that and test? Googling com.wdc.driver.USBHP reveals that your version of that extension is not the latest and that many users reporting panics had that installed. It may not be necessary to access whatever external disk you have.

    I don't even use Parallels so I'm not sure why that is in the log?

    Western Digital is my Hard Drive, I don't think that the hard drive can be uninstalled?

    Most external disks don't require special software, so you probably could uninstall that software.
    You had Parallels installed once, so the extensions are there. Here's the directions on how to remove all of it:

    It's not an external disk? I had replaced the internal HD of the computer with the Western Digital.

    Well in that case, you definitely do not need that extension loaded.

    What do you mean? I'm not really good at diagnosing and solving internal conflicts like this...

    com.wdc.driver.USBHP is an extension from Western Digital.
    Open the folder: /System/Library/Extensions and then look for WDUSBHPDriver.kext
    Delete it (you'll need to enter your username and password) and then restart the computer.

    I will give that a try and hope that it will work. Thanks!

    I tried doing a search for WDUSBHPDriver.kext and could not turn anything up. The extensions folder is empty with nothing in it. I have all hidden files visable.

    You're not looking in the right Extensions folder. From the Go menu in Finder choose "Go to folder" and then paste exactly this in there:
    ...and then press return.

    I found it. Thanks, hopefully that will work?


    Also, I went to do what the site said about getting rid of Parallels completely, but my computer never came with a Parallels Desktop CD.

    Macs don't come with Parallels software. It would be something that you purchased and added after you purchased your MacBook (or if not you, some other user). Or, maybe someone else installed Parallels for you. ?
    It's purpose is to allow you to use Windows, or another operating system that is not directly supported on your Mac. You don't need Parallels at all, but you may need its capabilities (running other operating systems such as Windows or Linux)

    I think if Parallels was causing you issues, then you would have had problems for a long time - but you said the problems started very recently…

    Did you just install some new software very recently (in the last month or two)? Or, add new hardware, such as a printer?

    There has been no other user other than myself for this computer. I know that Parallels was on it (as was bootcamp) when I purchased the computer. It came with Leopard, also, I know what Parallels does, it lets you use Windows OS and Mac OSX at the same time, bootcamp lets you choose between one or the other.

    I have not installed any new hardware (I do not own a printer) or software on my computer. I think the most recent thing I put on it was Illustrator, but I've had it for a while, I just took it off and had it on an external HD.

    You can boot to the original 10.5.5 or 10.5.6 DVD, booting to the Hardware test on that DVD. Easy to do - just hold the letter D while restarting with that DVD in the drive. That will boot to the Hardware Test, where you can run both the standard and extended tests. If nothing shows up there, reboot to the usual system, and then download and install your current 10.6.8 combined updater. That will sometimes repair issues that might be caused by corrupted or missing files in the system. You can get that updater here:
    I would suggest that you disconnect any accessories, such as the Sandisk USB flash drive, or any other external devices (except for the power adapter, of course) when running that combined updater. (your crash log listed that flash drive as attached)
