    I stopped even opening Console unless something bad happens.  They are all notations in there, and very difficult to read.  Just be patient.  If there is a KP, that report will tell us what's wrong.

    nigmia --

     

    Your question isn't addressed to me, but I do have some thoughts for you.

     


    The random graphics issues sounds like a graphics card going bad.  There's nothing you can do to improve that. It needs to be fixed by Apple, IMHO.

     

    If, for some really weird reason, it's the result of bad software, your likely culprits remain:

    com.rogueamoeba.hermes          4.1.0

    com.logmein.driver.LogMeInSoundDriver          1.0.0

    com.rogueamoeba.HermesAudio          4.1.0

    com.AmbrosiaSW.AudioSupport          4.1.2

    jp.plentycom.driver.SteerMouse          4.1.4

     

     

    You keep stating that you have no rogueamoeba apps on there, but you most certainly do. They show up on your report twice. 

    If it were my Mac, I would dump all of the above.  Find out of they can be just trashed, or if they need to be uninstalled. 

    That info can be found on their websites.

     

    Kernel Panics are very serious.  They can permanently damage your Hard Drive.

     

    As to your question as to whether your Mac is still viable  -- I have the same year's iMac.  It a work horse!  I would love a new one, but I can't justify it. It just keeps "going, and going and going . . ."  It's on the latest OS, as well. 

     

    I think your machine is very much still viable, but I would take it in and have them check out the graphics card and the logic board.

     

    But only after you've really deleted all the crap software on there, and at least you are positive they are not causing your problems.

     

    Hang in . . .

    Yes, noises from the HD are very worrying.  I would take it in, at this point.
