    I have a 2007 iMac with 2.16 Ghz and 4GB of ram and I installed Lion today and I very much regret it.

    The computer constantly freezes or restarts and when I try to repair disk permissions to see if that would help it freezes immediately as I hit the button.

    Is anyone having a similar problem? or have any ideas on what to do to fix it?

    I have not spent even half an hour on Lion without it freezing or the screen turning black and restarting. This is incredibly frustrating.

    It seems I have to revert back to Snow Leopard if anything.

    Mine does the same thing. I've even wiped my HDD and installed Lion and it still does it. I've reinstalled three different times and still does the same thing. :mad: This is so frustrating!!!!

    Not to bring up too much worry, but unfortunately I'm with you on the same issue.

    Randomly started getting kernel panics early Sunday morning. Most recent system change I can pinpoint is all the iLife apps via Software Update. Submitted a rendering job via Compressor, came back to check later and machine wouldn't wake up. Had to hard shut down, brought system back up and got the "Your computer shut down because of an error." message. About 10 minutes later, kernel panic. Turned off and back on, logged in, kernel panic. No rhyme or reason.

    Have a Mid-2007 20" iMac, 4GB memory installed--upgraded the system drive to a WD 1TB a few years back. Disconnected all external peripherals, kernel panic. (ruled that one out) Ran Micromat Tech Tool Pro, allowed the machine to do a complete hardware test as well as surface scan and sector verification--everything passed. Hmm.

    Said eff it and decided to go ahead and upgrade to Lion. Dumb choice, I know. Upgraded, awesome! About 10 minutes into use, kernel panic. You've got to be kidding me. Partitioned hard drive, did a CLEAN install of Lion (I made a bootable USB HDD of my download) ...installed just fine. Kernel panic. Uh?

    If anyone would like me to post my kernel panic here, I'd be glad to. I'm starting to suspect possible failing bluetooth chip as it's consistently the last kext loading. Not for sure. Next step is to swap the drive in the computer. Really not excited about that.

    Just thought I'd share my issues as well. Again, if anyone would like me to post my panic here, I'd be glad to!

    I see this in your panic:

    not sure what VirusBarrier is, but if it sounds familiar to you, might want to consider that?

    Can I back out lion?

    I've just started having the same issue. My MBP is suddenly not recognizing any of my bluetooth devices.

    Is it possible to just back out lion? I've never had to do anything like that before.

    I have the same issue with my MBP 2010, i7 2.66 with 8 GB RAM, SSD 256GB Crucial C300...Login screen freezes sometimes. "Colored rotating disc" appears, text cursor stops blinking and I can not do anything...look like I need to restart twice to be able to login...:confused:

    Thanks for the reply sorry i have taken so long to reply. My mac was given to me through DSA (disabled students allowance) for uni, so they put this anti virus on it, part of getting a free computer. If this continues then i will remove it. the software is Intego Virus barrier X6.

    I highly recommend uninstalling it. You don't need any antivirus software to protect Mac OS X from malware. No viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any, since it was released 10 years ago. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some basic education, common sense and care in what software you install:
