    Hi, I recently made the switch from a PC and have been very happy with the Mac so far. Today, I opened it up and had a message on the screen in about 6 languages saying I had to do a hard restart. I couldn't get the trackpad or keyboard to work so I had to do it, but I was afraid I had some sort of virus or something (I realize Macs are less susceptible but not impervious). Makes me very nervous since its been so flawless to date. After it started, I got a message asking to send a notification to Apple, and the data below about the problem. Has anyone had this, and can you help me understand what happened? Thanks,

    It look like it may have been a kernel panic. I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts to happen on a regular basis. Are you running the most up to date versions of your software?

    It means your computer crashed. How often does it crash?

    Most definitely a kernel panic. Not a big deal unless it happens consistently. It just means something somewhere messed up in a way that the computer couldn't handle.

    No need to worry!

    And, FWIW, Macs are impervious to viruses (for the moment, none exist) and there are very few other types of malware out there. Don't pirate software, and you'll have nothing to worry about.

    Thanks for the responses - it is much appreciated. This is the first time the computer's crashed, so it hasn't been a frequent problem. Wordoflife, that's exactly the screen message I got; it looked a little odd so I was afraid it was from some sort of outside application. I think I'm running the most up to date SW but will double check. Thanks again for the help!
