In the past few days, my PhotoBooth, iPhoto, Safari, Finder, and other apps have been crashing at random (and yes, even in the middle of recording videos). Usually after I report the issue to Apple and reopen them about 5 times or so, they stop. I thought maybe a software update would help...thinking it was a few bugs... But my Mac won't let me update. While checking for updates, that crashes too. I'm a little worried...anyone else having this problem? I've only had this thing a little over a year! (Mac OS X Version 10.7.5)

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Can you post your latest "crash" log (I'm assuming that these are kernel panics?

    Post what you have - if you'll read the page I cited, you'll know where to look for kernel panics (if you're having them). But post what you have...

    OK - can't tell a lot from that... try this - downlaod EtreCheck - - and copy and paste the report back into a reply here.
