    I've been experiencing crashes when using iMovie '09, as well as most of the applications I use on a daily basis. My Finder has been crashing a lot as well after I installed iLife. This occurs a couple of times a day, and the error reports give the exception codes "KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at ... " and other variants of that. What is causing this? How can I fix it?

    This is another portion of an example report, this just happened:
    and this is my system config

    I feel like some crashes are due to the fact that I need more memory but I don't know about all the others.

    Thanks in advance

    To update the thread, I am still having lots of crashes but I searched other forums and they said that for Finder crashes, to reset Finder settings, but I don't know how to do that.

    Should I uninstall all iLife '09 programs and install them again? I'm really going crazy here because this is really messing up my computer. I never thought I would have these problems with a Mac.

    Obligatory have you tried repairing your permissions?

    Resetting Finder's settings is as straightforward as going to (home)/Library/Preferences, locating the Finder.plist, trashing it, then relaunching Finder or restarting the computer.

    Anyone else having problems with iLife 09? I'm hesitating to upgrade, given the rough patches I've seen with iWork 09...
