Hello all, I am having issues. For some reason I am gettting a Kernel Panic every 8 days. No matter what program I am running on that day it seems to kernel panic. Where can I go to see what programs are running and what program or applications is causing the kernel panic. The first time it kernel panic on Finder, the on the next 8th day it kernel panic on Adobe InDesign, then the next 8th day it kernel panic on Adobe Illustrator. For some reason I think there is a process running every 8 days and that is what is causing the issue. Any advice will be helpful. Oh yeah I have a Mac Pro running OSX 10.5
Thanks.

You can try looking at your console log. Which should be in your application -> utilities folder.

I would try running an Apple Hardware Test to rule out any potential hardware issues. Kernel panics are generally caused by a severe fault, usually related to drivers or hardware. If your system is up-to-date, and you've already done some basic troubleshooting steps, it might be hardware related.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I performed the Hardware diagnostic and no error or issues where reported. I also waited 8 days and no kernel panic. I am still keepin a close eye on it to make sure ti doesn't kernel panic again.
