      I've been using SheepShaver for some years now and on this particular MacBook Pro since I got it new in January. Mostly, I've had no problems.

      In the last month or so, it has been crashing on opening. Often, it crashes before getting to the blue start up screen, sometimes it crashes within a minute of getting to the desk top.

      Other times it crashes when I print to the Adobe PS printer. When it crashes when something is sent to the Adobe PS printer, it actually just freezes and I have to do a force quit of SheepShaver.

      Console has several lengthy "User Diagnostic Reports", but they mean nothing to me. Also, there is the "Console Messagees" report. The most recent Console message is as follows:

      Does anyone have any suggestions for a cure?
