I just had another panic, why am I experiencing these?  I had a lot of windows open and I was using itunes.  I know I keep too many windows open. I will stop, I guess I overload my computer.  Any help is appreciated.  I do not like crashes or whatever we call this in the Mac community.

  • twtwtw Level 5 Level 5 (4,900 points)

    If I'm reading this correctly, your last kernel panic (that's what these are called) occured six months ago.  Is that correct?  It probably does not have anything to do with the number of windows you have open; I suspect it has to do with one of the third party kexts or non-apple hardware.  My guess would be something with parallels (is the software up to date?), but if you're only getting panics at 6 month intervals it's really hard to diagnose. 


    Kernel panics aren't fun, but they aren't the end of the world.  make sure you keep regular backups, and if you can figure out how to replicate the panic at a more frequent interval we can figure it out.

    Thank you, I will try to keep a CHECK  on it.  Thank you for your reply.
