    It mentions WindowServer... Do you have any theme changers installed? As a generic question, what third party hardware (including RAM) do you have installed?

    no theme changers, no real third part software installed at all except parallels, everything else on there is apple

    third party hardware

    my scorpio WD harddrive
    4gb OCZ ram

    and at the time of this panic i had a USB soundblaster plugged in as well

    but its paniced about 4 times since installing leopard, doing various things

    ill have to check when i get home to see if the other logs mention windowserver

    Yeah post up more of the logs, because that one isn't very informative. :)

    A fresh install will only help if the problem is software-based.

    I think it's pretty clear what the problem is. You might want to go back to the OS that wasn't crashing your system enough for you to start a thread on the subject. This presumes you're more interested in a stable OS than in a barely-past-beta OS being pushed by marketing.

    But he hasn't established whether the memory upgrade to 4gigs was before he installed or Leopard or he had it installed with his old operating system.

    I really don't think there's much point in performing a clean install before we are fully aware of whether it'll work. Kernel panics are more frequently associated with hardware issues rather than software conflicts.

    Very true. The RAM could be the culprit. OP, was the 4gb upgrade before or after the Leopard install? And besides that, have you run a memory test in general?
