    None of my software has been downloaded using a uTorrent, and as I said, the only programs I had open from outside of the App Store were Photoshop purchased from Adobe and uTorrent (albeit a beta version, but it hasn't been open, or even a beta version, every time the Mac has crashed). The only other program downloaded outside of the App Store that is on my computer (but is almost never running) is Img2icns, a tiny program used to convert images to icons.

     

    And BTW, just to clarify, I did rebuild the system from the ground up when I had the HD replaced. That is why I am so confused as to the origin of the problem.

    So I've re-downloaded OSX ML from the App Store and re-installed it - will that have restored all the original system files?

     

    I'm going to presume CandyBar edited something in the system files that wasn't restored when I uninstalled CandyBar.

     

    All my icons have been restored, so I'm just checking re-installing has restored any corrupted/edited files in the system.

     

    Thanks!

    Are you sure your Mac is properly earthed.  I have had similar problems while my Mac was running from an unearthed wallocket.  I also felt some light shocks from the Mac housing.  After running from a properly earhted wallsocket all my problems have discappeared.

     

    Hope this helps you

     

    Regards, Wouter
