iMac issue with finder and crashes
 
I have an iMac which has been having issues with finder, and it sometimes crashes with a kernel panic screen. I plan to upgrade to snow leopard from leopard to attempt to resolve these issues. Do you think reinstalling osx and then upgrading is the way to go, or will an upgrade without an initial reinstall fix these issues? The snow leopard disk I have is upgrade only which is why I need to reinstall leopard first.

Thanks!

Could you post the kernel panic report so we can try and pinpoint the issue?

First off, bad *** icon! Second off, my friend was using it when it happened and didn't save it. Does it store the panic reports in a log file somewhere?

First off, lol ;)
Second off... should be auto-saved when it happens to Home > Library > Logs or Home > Library > Logs > DiagnosticReports

HTH,
