    Default Applications crashing frequently and without warning

    Hi everyone,

    My uncle's Mac is crashing shortly after opening applications, and I've been unable to diagnose why. I've found some forums that have touched on the subject when I Google the crash report, but I think my crash report needs specific attention to diagnose it. Can anybody make heads or tails of this? Here's the google doc link to the text:

    I also ran a hardware test in the Test Suite and there were no errors detected.

    Default Welcome to the Guru's forums

    First which Mac?

    Can you boot into a different user do you have the same problem?

    Can you boot to a CD/DVD?

    I have noticed this behavior myself since updating to 10.9 on my i7 MacBook. With 10.8 the OS would crash. My i5 Mini is still on 10.8, and doesn't crash though it does struggle sometimes. Funny since I bought it to be the expendable Mac, but it's been rock solid.

    My FrankenMac G4 tower running 10.4 never crashes. Go figure.

    Knowing which Mac/OS your uncle has will help us help you help him.

    Question What OS are you running?

    I'm running 10.9.4 on my iMac 2.9GHz i5 without any issues. What OS are you running and is it up to date?
