Now I see here that a program I installed this afternoon, Soundflower, showed up amongst the report. The first time I had a panic, while I do not remember what it contained, but I had also installed a program and had an error a few hours later.


I am not super tech savvy, but I am going to guess that both reports were a result of the programs I had installed, as I had read third party programs (which I am guessing soundflower is) can lead to reports.


I have had my macbook pro for nearly 3 years, and both times this has happen, I had installed programs a bit earlier in the day.

Do you think that this is why I've had kernel reports? Or could it be something wrong with my computer??


Any tips/advice/input much appreciated.

    The third-party system modification "Soundflower" may be contributing to your problem. I suggest you back up all data, then uninstall it according to the developer's instructions. Reboot and see whether there's any improvement.

    Back up all data before making any changes.
