My system keeps crashing, and it's becoming more frequent.


Each time the only common fault is that "Finder" is not responding. This then means that everything freezes.


This seems to be unrecoverable and I have to force a power-off using the power button.


This is now happening 3-4 times each day.


All help / advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.



MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
