Hi, I've been experiencing problems with my powerbook g4, after upgrading to 10.5 OS. (Keep getting the grey "need to restart" screen!)
Everytime I log in as admin, I get a grey "computer needs to restart" screen, yet everything works fine when I login as guest. Someone suggested I pull up my console log, but I haven't the slightest what all this means. Can anyone help me decipher this puzzle?

Thanks!

This is actually a more accurate console log as it corresponds directly to when I tried logging into my admin account right when the gray screen appeared. If anyone notices anything out of the ordinary, please let me know so that I could at least know what to address. Thanks!
