    I've run into 4 kernel panics in the last week.

    2 months ago I was in a permanent state of "panic" and I had my logic board replaced. Everything seemed to be running fine until now. I installed 2 maintenance apps, "Maintenance" and "OnyX" not long before I started getting the "panic" again. Could this be a possible problem? I live overseas and there's not an official "Apple Store" here, so anything I can do from my desk would be wonderful.

    I'll post the error log incase any of you with spidey-vision can see the problem.

    Thanks so much

    Cisco VPN software is causing the panics, pretty well known issue.

    I've used Onyx. I doubt it's the problem. Perhaps Maintenance is the problem. You have nothing to lose by dragging both of them to the trash and seeing if things settle down. Kernel panics are more commonly hardware related but sometimes they really can be caused by software.

    When I run into repeated kernel panics, I call Apple and use my Applecare. If I'm in the mood and have the time, I go through all the debugging steps they recommend. If I'm in a hurry, I ask for a "quick fix". When I ask for a "quick fix", they usually recommend an archive and install...

    I insert my most recent OS X DVD and pick archive and install when prompted. Everything I care about always comes back. Keep in mind, I've only had to do this a handful of times. Twice on my Macbook and twice on my daughter's Mac Mini. That's a total of 4 times on 6 Macs in 4 years, though I must admit it happened twice on two of my more heavily used Macs. Still it's rare. And it's painless. Sort of. If you have an older Mac, your OS DVD might be quite old and software update might want to download close to a gig of stuff to put everything back up to date.

    Edit: Oops, I see Chrysaor's post blaming Cisco VPN. If you archive and install, the Cisco VPN will still be there. Based on Chrysaor's info, I now suggest you try getting rid of (or simply disabling?) Cisco VPN and see if your problem goes away before doing the archive and install which takes upwards of 45 minutes...

    Thanks for the help. I'd really like to keep my Cisco VPN. Any recommendations that don't involve getting rid of it?
