    This error will show up when a memory address is invalid. You could have a RAM issue, even though the hardware test showed fine. I would go and do this.

    1. First, trash the preference file(s) on the app(s) that are crashing and see what happens.

    2. Do an Archive and Install to eliminate a software issue.

    3. Try replacing the RAM, or pull one module and switch them around to test one at a time.
