    I don't - I have a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB in my 2009 MBP

    Try a Spotlight search for "Uninstall Soundflower" - it should find a script (with a .scpt extension). Load that up in AppleScript editor and press the "Run" button. You'll probbaly need to reboot after.

    ok, guys , like i said before my problem was a chrome and after reinstalling NO FREEZES,


    but when come up new update for Mountain Lion FREEZES come back again, so i tryid to repeate reinstalling of chrome, and guess what? no FREEZES again....

  • WimpyW Level 1 Level 1

    I don't have chrome even installed, but I do have the crashes. I don't have Inte HD graphics but the ATI Radeon HD 4670. And when I type uninstall soundflower it comes up with nothing. But I do have the extension installed as my log suggests.... Pretty messed up this.

  • WimpyW Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks for the suggestion Ressac, appdelete won't find any soundflower files though. Still the extension remains... kinda weird that it's not possible to delete this!

    This problem had disappeared after I updated all my Safari plug-ins, but unfortunately it returned after a few days.  It disappeared again after I uninstalled AirParrot, but again it returned after a few days.  It is definitely graphics-related.  Today I had to perform a hard-reset more than 20 times as I was editing photos in Aperture and Photoshop.  VERY frustrating.  The problem is also easily triggered by watching Flash videos (e.g. YouTube).


    Apple, if you're reading this: you've clearly broken something with Mountain Lion, and not just for me but for countless others too!  Quit ignoring us!  Find out what's wrong and fix it in your next update, please!  If I had known that Mountain Lion were so unstable, I would have NEVER upgraded.  Very, very disappointing.

    My iMac 21.5" just started doing these random hangs. It only happens once or twice a week for us.  I have kept OSX up to the latest and greatest versions without fail since I purchased this computer in the 2009 timeframe; I am now running 10.8.2.  I have no idea if it is 10.8.2 related, or just untimely h/w malfunctions.


    Within the past month, both times the system hangs have occurred while in Safari at non-descript sites ( today); since my wife and I share this machine, we sometimes use Chrome and other times Safari.  The hangs are as described here; mouse continues to update, but it is not possible to click on anything or get any reaction from the iMac.  Only a hard reset with the power button gets the system to come back to life. 


    This feels like a hardware problem, but I admit it could certainly be a driver problem introduced in 10.8.2.  Wierdly, I just received an email from Apple (my iMac is still under warranty) in the past week that suggested I update my 1TB hard drive since there are known problems with my h/w; just take it to the AppleStore and get the fix after I do a Time Machine backup.  I suppose (?) it could be hard drive related, but who knows... anyway, if after I udpate the hard drive the problem goes away, I'll repost that information here then.

    I have the same problem, on an iMac 27" (late 2009).  It started after I updated to Lion in the summer of 2011, and has been getting progressively worse.  At first, it would happen only once or twice a month.  Now it happens multiple times each day.  I upgraded to Mountain Lion, but the problem persists.


    Apple please help!  My Mac is almost unusable, because it may freeze at any moment.

    cjb134and jarchca


    all i can say for you guys, that is problem in software you using on your mac's, try to trace it when it freeze. for example in my case when it has been freez Chrome was always open, so i just reinstalled it and now no problem on my mac.



    anyway best solution it's make a clean install and try to use it on clean for week maybe two, and then try to install all your software to find out what programm is make it freeze



    sorry for my english, i hope you understand me :)) haha

  • Spunky9 Level 1 Level 1

    Having this problem since last week on my iMac (2009) w/ 10.8.2 I thought it was because I had iPhoto open each time.. iTunes would stop playing, mouse moves, spinning ball if I should click on anything though. Hardware test says all ok, very frustrating

  • Spunky9 Level 1 Level 1

    As I hit enter, it happened again, and even as I type this, again. iTunes goes on and off..

  • jarchca Level 1 Level 1

    I have researched this a bit further, and believe the problem may in fact be with the AMD graphics driver used in Mountain Lion.  If this is true, the freeze has nothing to do with whether iTunes is running (or not), Chrome, or presumablly any other application for that matter.   My 21.5" iMac has the AMD graphics (not NVIDIA).  Are others on this thread with the freeze problem also running with the AMD graphics on their iMac?  If so, I suspect the rumor (?) about the AMD driver problem may be the root cause...

  • jarchca Level 1 Level 1

    Duh, should have looked at this thread more closely myself.  At least one person above reported the problem happens with their iMac with the NVIDIA graphics.  Maybe the problem is simply in the graphics driver for old chipsets?  Anyway, I don't really know... I recently re-installed 10.8.2 on an unrelated issue (my 1TB hard drive was recently replaced under warranty by Apple due to a h/w issue there).  Since the 10.8.2 re-install with Time Machine (once I got the machine back from apple), all has been ok for the past week or two (no freezes).  This may not hold true forever, but thought worth mentioning.
