    I just updated to 10.9.4 and have already had 2 crashes.

    Both times I was listening to iTunes while editing PDFs saved in OneDrive.

    Any of you experience this?

    I haven't had another one since the two back to back ones.

    I reset PRAM though.

    Exact same problem on an early 1023 MBP. Crashed twice while listening to iTunes and working in Photoshop.

    ----------

    I also reset the PRAM but it came back. Only happens with iTunes play music.

    Whoa! Now wonder your Mac is having Kernel Panics on 10.9.4, seeing as it was made in 1023! :rolleyes:

    Strange...I noticed that too. When my system crashed both times iTunes was the first thing to stop, but I dismissed it as I just didn't think Apple's own player would cause it.

    Also, after the first pram reset I got my second crash, I reset it again and haven't had any more.....yet.

    Multiple crashes, kernel panics and freezes here since updating to 10.9.4.

    2012 rMBP, 16GB, 2.6GHz i7.

    Not happy.

    Before doing anything * FIRST DO A BACK-UP * so your files can be restored later on. Have you made a back-up of the good working OS X 10.9.3 that you can restore?

    Thanks. Crashes/freezes continued despite the software surgery. Took it to Genius Bar; they think it's hardware related. Waiting for the repair now (under AppleCare). Fortunately I have a spare Mac, ordinarily deployed as a server, which I can use for my work in the mean time.

    ----------

    Always good advice. Thanks, yes, I have backups.
