Or at least I can't find any clues other than repeated attempts to sign-in to a discontinued MobilMe account.

 

Any ideas?

 

The list of actions taken so far:

 

  1. Clean install and migrated user files from Time Machine back up.
  2. Installed OS10.6.8 over current OS
  3. Repair permissions from disk, zapped pram and reset smc.
  4. Ran Extended Apple Hardware Test, Drive Genius Scan Test, 6 loops of Rember (Memtest) - all passed
  5. Ran Onyx Maintanance and Clean.
  6. Searched and deleted old PPC and unused Intel applications and drivers
  7. Updated current apps and drivers.
  8. Removing all connected hardware except power and ethernet cable did not stop crash.
  9. One mistake was to delete Bonjour in Safari but I'm not sure what effect that may have had.
  10. What I've forgotten after a couple of weeks working on this problem

 

I have previously posted but I seem to have run into a dead end.

 

Here's the Console log ending with the launchd[1] entry which is the restart after a hard power off (?)

    Start with a google search for mDNSResponder site:apple.com and peruse the top three or four hits.

    If you have Xcode installed, then the Property List Editor is the better way to go, adding that restriction. I don't do WiFi or use Bonjour, so no issues here with multicast advertisements.

    Never had a MobileMe account, so can't help with that. As for Xcode, it's for anyone, that's why it was on the install disc. it contains a lot of useful apps, utilities, and executable commands.

    As before, use the Property List Editor to add that restriction. Most likely, you'll have to copy the plist file to your Desktop, make the change, change its permissions to system and wheel, and then use the Terminal to replace the current one. No need to use Xcode and make a project.
