    So there I was multi tasking on my powerbook G415" between word doc's, i photo, pages, firefox and itunes when all of a sudden a grey text box appeared in the center of the screen telling me in 4 languages to hold down the power button to restart my mac. My speakers stared to make a high-pitched chirping sound and the whole OS froze.

    Not knowing what the hell this message was I decided not to follow it's instruction (for fear of a virus) and I unplugged my mac and allowed the ****** Mac battery to die instantly...it re-boot.

    upon start up my clocks, personal setting's and mail accounts were all whipped clean and reset. My powerbook now seems to run a lot slower then before and I am completely lost for ideas of what happen.

    Any ideas.

    The gibberish below is what came up for the error message upon reboot.

    It's a kernel panic. Usually rare, but not unheard of. Just do what it says, and don't worry unless they become a reoccurring thing. Do you have Symantec Antivirus, by any chance?

    Thank you for the comments.

    I'm using Symantec 11.0 Any suggestions for alternatives? Should I uninstall it?

    Yes. Install it again when there is a mac virus in the wild. Currently there's no need for it.

    I would suggest downloading and running Onyx. It will clear up any mess left after the crash.

    Spring Cleaning or AppZapper will thoroughly remove any traces of Symantec. Yeah, that's a nasty one, well-known for it's ability to thrash an otherwise healthy Mac. Most of us don't run any AV as, quite honestly, there's no substantial risk.

    ClamXav Is the tool of choice if you feel you must use an AV product, though personally, I find it pretty damn annoying. At least it won't crash your system, though.

    Get rid of Symantec Antivirus. NOW.

    Even better, backup your data and reinstall and take a blood oath never to install that crap again... :eek:
