    Assassins Creed (Torrents) daemon.

    Crashed Thread:  4  Dispatch queue: com.apple.CrashReporter.ACRRDaemonPlugin

    Not good.

    Are you using Torrents?

    At the very least, get rid of Assassins Creed.

    Well, when you talk to them, remind them about the 2010 problems. It's your decision, but I'd try either 16 GB OEM RAM or - if you have the original 2 OEM RAM - put those back and ge 2 x 4 GB for a total of 12.

     

    And, I would not go near a torrent site - I don't trust them unless they were from a reputable business. You don't know what your downloads include (other than what you think you're getting).

    Good.  That's very much a big part of your problem.

    Let us know, OK?

    And yes, stay away from torrents.  You're just begging for trouble.

     

    EDIT:  And I think 16G is maximum supported RAM on your iMac, according to what I'm reading.

    I run FCE and 12 GB is ok - you will never get instantaneous rendering; a close friend of mine worked for a major TV station and he said they would have 5 - 6 computers running 24/7 rendering the footage the reporters and road crews would send in; editing/rendering video is the single most demanding task for your computer - I bought my latest iMac purposely because it tested fastest in benchmark tests for video and it still takes quite a while (although it is a lot faster than what I had previously). You'd need to buy a Mac Pro with 32 or 64 GB RAM (if there is such a thing) and, although faster,  it would still take a while.

    Your main problem was the ACCR.

    You should be fine now.

    (That was kinda fun, eh?)
