    My macs are suddenly crashing every now and then, maybe once a day or once every two days. I have a MacBook C2D and an iMac aluminium both loaded almost identically in terms of software. I need to sort this out prompto because I need to use the MacBook live this Sunday and I can't have a random crash. Here's the crash report:

    Kernel version:
    Darwin Kernel Version 9.5.0: Wed Sep 3 11:29:43 PDT 2008; root:xnu-1228.7.58~1/RELEASE_I386
    System model name: iMac7,1 (Mac-F42386C8)

    I'm running 10.5.5 and apart from that the most recent updates have been iTunes 8.01 (or whatever the latest is). The only other thing is I've recently put CS3 web premium (with latest updates) on both macs but I'm pretty certain that this behaviour started before I installed that (although can't really be positive on that). Please advise if you can or have seen similar.

    Backup your personal files and do a complete format of the drive, and then reinstall Leopard. It seems to be a sort of system error.
