    Hello all,
    Newb here.
    I have had a 09 macbook 10.6.4 osx dual intel for the last year with no problems. Just in the last week I have gotten a usb broadband modem (of which I have used similar devices on this machine w/o problems) and been surfing, and downloading... And now I get the grey reboot screen intermittently it seems to happen while using firefox and gmail. I figured to update everything and i thought it was finished. But it still crashed. I have downloaded ClamXav and have no known virus. Now I have switched to Safari and so far *fingers crossed* haven't crashed since. 30 mins so far... Any help, comments, concerns...
    If it happens again im this close to wiping the HD... :eek:

    yea thats the screen.
    its a usb interface its basically a thumb drive with sim card inside
    the drivers are installed the first time you plug in the devise to the usb port.

    Side note no crashes since i switched to safari. 2 hrs so far. :D
