    Hi all.
    I've been having this error coming up frequently for the past time, where I am forced to restart my computer and loose all unsaved data.
    I have no idea why this happens. This is where you come in!
    Also, I am a blackbook owner.
    My error rapport looks like this:

    Looks like you have Norton Antivirus installed on your?

    Try uninstalling that and making sure all vestiges of said product is removed. I see that there's references to symantec kexts in your dump. Norton antivirus is not a good product for Macs. IF you must have an antivirus app, there are better alternatives. I suggest given the dearth of malware that you don't even need any such program.

    Remove Symantec Internet Security, including the Symantec kernel extensions. This software is probably useless junk.

    Absolutely! Norton's Software on a Mac is the next best thing to a virus!! ;)
