    Hello there!

    I am using a Mac Pro with Mac OS X 10.8.4, always installing all updates.
    Since a couple of days ago, even though I didn't install anything, WindowServer started crashing. It looks like my desktop becomes slightly whiter than usual, then it's like I've re-logged-in.
    The crash log of the approximate crash time is

    What may cause this? iStatMenus? Some faulty device? I use an Audigy2 card with kX drivers and it makes the computer freeze with an annoying beep, but not that frequent, and it didn't crash WindowServer for the past 7 months. Maybe a bad GPU?
    Anybody ever experienced this?
    Already done all HDD checks and permission repairs.

    I had this happening to me on my MBP. In my case it was the Adobe Flash plugin in Safari causing it.

    Do the typical. Disable extensions, plugins etc. See if it still happens. Then enable stuff until you can reproduce the issue.
