    Can anyone tell me what's going on? My MacBook gets a kernel panic every time I boot it up. Should I reinstall the OS? Please help! :(:(:(

    I just repaired disk permissions and that did nothing. :(:(:(

    hmmm, have you tried backing up and re-installing? not sure what could be causing the problem.

    I backed up last night, before turbo tax, and I'm now reinstalling the OS. If I have to, I'll delete Turbo Tax.

    OS 10.6.0 has been installed. Turbo Tax is being deleted as I type this. I guess I'll be going to my dads house to use Turbo Tax on his PC. Fortunately I got mine and my moms taxes done. I just need to get my sisters done.

    Update: I found the culprit and it isn't TurboTax. It's my HP printer! Whenever I try to print something, no matter what it is, my MacBook gets a Kernel Panic. Guess I'm printing out my returns at my dads. :rolleyes:
