My Late 2010 15" MBP has random freezes.

 

There's never any obvious cause but it's often when there's some sort of internet access involving either Safari or Chrome. Sometimes it's when I try to quit either of these after finishing using them, other times a webpage appears to stop loading. I've tried looking through Console but I can't make any sense of that - or at least how it relates to my problem

 

Trying to force quit ends up with an unresponsive Finder then it's the endless beachball.

 

Below is the last console log from waking up to restarted. First entry relates to the fact it crashed yesterday ( I think, because if I run disk repair I don't get that message until after any subsequent crash). Wacom PenTablet driver is up to date, I've removed iStat menu's (thought it might be a cause - evidently not), the only other thing I see commonly is the iTunes art files.

 

Anyone any ideas??

 

Thanks.
