    Please help, I've a big problem:
    I was using an iMac Late 2009 21" flawlessly - until last wednesday: I got a kernel panic, reasons were
    • and

    I thought "OK, this can happen". But now, every time I start the Mac, Finder, launchproxyls, UserEventAgent and several other processes crash - on startup!

    And as if that were not enough, mds and kernel_task are working and working and working... They eat up a quarter of my 4GB memory (in detail:
    • kernel_task - 77 threads - 480MB
    • mds - 6 threads - 100MB

    So: What shall I do? I've repaired my harddrive using harddrive utility app, but, as you may guess, it didn't work in any way. Do you have any ideas? I hope, my harddrive won't broke...

    Thanks for any ideas and help.
