Since last week I can't open VLC and Google Chrome, it freezes immediately after opening. It's the report output for VLC:

Chrome also doesn't respond - could they be related?

The only thing I want is fixing this, not a fresh install of OSX. The machine is a MacBook Pro Mid2011 running OSX 10.9.1.

  • Reinstalling a clean OS would be a good troubleshooting step despite you saying you don't want to do that. You could install onto an external drive and first test the hardware, then next chrome and last VLC. it would rule out and narrow down some potential causes of your difficulties.

  • Testing hardware? it's okay. I have a windows installed on Mac also, everything works fine there.

  • I would say they are not related. Did it work before?
