For the past week or so my computer has been crashing at least once a day with the same error.

*** Panic Report ***

I've wiped the drive and re-installed El Capitan but I'm still getting the same issue.

I use this machine for software development, so there's a good amount of CPU and memory intense operations, a couple virtual environments, and I run Chrome Canary, Chromium, and Chrome which I know are big hogs as far as browsers go. However, when running low on memory before I recall there being a dialog window that "Your system is low on memory" and I was able to close programs before a crash.

What would be causing this issue? Hardware failure? Memory leak in a program?

I notice that last process name is Google Chrome He so maybe it's just time I switch browsers...

  • It seems to be the Google Chrome Helper process. Have you tried removing Chrome to see if the problem goes away?

  • What version of Chrome you have? I have the same problem and mine is 62.0.3192.0 dev

  • I run Chrome 60.0.3112.101 (Official Build) (64-bit), Chromium 62.0.3194.0 (Developer Build) (64-bit), and Chrome Canary 62.0.3194.0 (Official Build) canary (64-bit). I've switched to Safari, Firefox, and Opera and haven't had any crashes, so I think it's just an issue with Chrome's software, though I haven't narrowed down which one. Aug 24, 2017 at 22:19

Seems it's a Google Chrome issue and the team is working on a fix.

Check this issue.

  • Well I'm relieved it doesn't appear to be an issue with my machine, then. I've stopped using Chrome and for the past few days haven't had any crashes, so definitely the culprit. Aug 24, 2017 at 22:20
  • I have the same problem in Chrome Version 67.0.3396.99 (Official Build) (64-bit). I thought it was due to graphical acceleration, and turned that all off, but it didn't help.

  • A few years later, I'm hitting this same issue and I'm not using Chrome. It's installed but not running – doesn't even have a helper running.
