  1. Hello, everyone. I have an older Hackintosh. Running Yosemite. It was doing very well for me for quite some time until earlier this year. A few minutes after startup, and it crashes. I have tried the following: I removed all software that was set to launch on startup, including ProTec6. I have tried launching in safe mode. I have tried disconnecting the cables. I have tried disabling Ethernet in BIOS. That last option worked, and I then ran EtreCheck, and only saw that Sophos components were hanging around. (I must have removed Sophos at some point in the past.) No other significant errors were found, but I was unable to update EtreCheck without an Internet connection. Nor can I install Sophos anew without that connection. Connecting to the Internet will freeze the whole system a few minutes after starting. I suspect it might have been the VPN software I installed shortly before this craziness started. It was paid software (although I can't remember which right now), but I can't find any of its components among the running processes. I'm at my wits end... Any help will be gratefully acknowledged and acted on. FYI: Motherboard: Z97X-UD3H-BK CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K FY
