Hopefully I can explain this correctly!

I have a Macbook Pro (2.66 GHz Intel Core i7) - 8 MB 1067 MHz DDR 3 Memory. Just upgraded to OS X 10.8.2 after having to wipe the hard drive due to it being corrupt, so upgraded operating systems.

Since I have done so, the operating system crashes 4-5x a day, with no consistency, ie. opening certain programs, visiting certain websites, etc it is typically fairly random. Has happened twice within 2-3 minutes or hours apart.

When it crashes, it goes to the gray screen which says your computer has crashed due to an error, press a button or wait to restart in a few languages.

Obviously this makes the laptop virtually unusable for doing work, as its crashing often. Before I take it into the Apple store I wanted to reach out to see if anyone

A) knows whats going on with it
B) how to fix it

Here is the error message that is "reported to apple":
