    Hello all,

    Well I am a little frustrated and looking for someone that can maybe find a solution with my problem. My mac pro system crashes constantly at least once a day if not more and it always seems to happen when I am doing something important. I have noticed that it usually crashes when I am on Safari... I have attached the report. Thanks for the help!

    Try reinstalling OS X and only installing the apps that you need, run it for a couple days and see if it is more stable. If it continues to Kernal Panic that often, take it to an Apple Store.

    Boot into another account and see if you still have the same problem before reinstalling.

    I've had this problem myself when i was doing some development work on my Mac Pro, its because of the SMC (System Management Controller) Firmware Update 1.2 which came out a few weeks ago, have you recently installed it? Anyway if you arn't sure heres the method to fixing your problem:

    Hope this works :)

    ??? I just went looking and the last firmware update for the Mac Pro was back in March from what I can find. The firmware update back on Dec 10 was for the new alum Macbook and MBPs. Not arguing that a SMC reset may help though...

    Have you run AHT? Also, curious as to what video card you are running. I had a similar prob and it turned out to be the video card, however log files definitely showed the prob was a video issue. Other then that, there may be a problem with an application running. Do you have anything else running?, and if so try killing that application and see how it goes. Also, temps... what are they at?
