Go to the Apple site

and find the Combination Update file that contains the update that you last ran.

Download the Combination Update and then run it.

Sometimes this removes the offending problem.

I tried this and did not seem to work. Now I am 98% sure that every trouble starts from the airport.. I had it turned off for a 1.5 day and computer works fine. Internet a bit slower for some reason as was before but the freezing stopped. I will swap the card next week.

Another possibility
by Jimmy Greystone / November 10, 2010 10:29 PM PST

Another possibility, though I'd strongly recommend trying the other advice first, is that your airport card may be going bad. In pretty much every service manual for an Apple system made in the last couple of years, there's a small section in the troubleshooting area about dealing with kernel panics caused by the airport card. Yours may just not be quite to the level of causing kernel panics, but still well on its way. Unfortunately the only real test for this is to remove the airport card, see if things improve, or swap it for another. On a MacBook, that requires a minimum of removing the DVD drive, and some tools not commonly found in the average home toolkit.

If the system is under warranty, take it to an Apple store, let them swap out the card to see if things improve or not.

Apple stores get to be lazy and just throw parts at systems all day long until they hit on something that works. The rest of us have to actually learn the art of diagnostics. We're expected to use no more than 1.1 parts per repair, and get dinged if we do. The .1 part works out so that for every 10 repairs, we can have one where there are two parts used and not be dinged for it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
