When two operating systems have similar difficulty, it sounds like the Java is accessing the same point in memory, and you have a memory issue with your computer. Run the hardware test that came with your computer, and if it is inconclusive, try replacing the RAM with to spec RAM under lifetime warranty*:
Ok took this one step further and swapped out the 8GB upgrade back to the 4GB that originally came with my laptop.This didnt solve the problem so I dont think this is related to the hardware.
Here's one more thing I noticed though. The crash doesnt happen if you upload files the moment you turn on the PC. But after about 15 minutes of usage if I try to upload the file... system down.
It also baffles me that finder gets taken down along with the browser......
Anyone with a similar issue / solution ?
Did you ever find a solution? I've got the same thing happening on my machine and it's starting to be a big problem.
Thought it was Chrome at first, but it's started happening in Safari.
Disabled VirusBarrier and several other programs as soon as I start up.
Sometimes it'll upload images fine a few times, then all of a sudden spinning ball crash, with no real way to recover.
Logs don't show much that appears related.
