    I hope someone can help me / steer me in the right direction ti troubleshoot / cure this problem.

    I'm running a Retina Macbook Pro 8 gig ram, 1 TB SSD hard drive, latest Mavericks OS.

    I'm getting a high level of seemingly random crashes where the program I'm working with quits unexpectedly. It seems to happen when I'm 'doing' such as trying to print, opening a new window, start entering text ext. These seem random, with no pattern as to whats causing the crash. As an example, when I first opened this forum page and started to type this problem - Safari crashed.

    This happens to a range of programs.

    Any thoughts?

    Many thanks!

    Boot into Recovery Mode and in that mode run Disk Utility on it and repair disk and repair permissions. See if that helps.
