Default My Mac OSX Tiger crashes constantly!

Just as the subject says, this stupid PPC Mac OSX 10.4.11 on
PowerMac 3.5 crashes at anytime, can't rid of this!

I had emulators on a CD, and they are: Snes9x, Genesis Plus, Nestopia,
SMS Plus, and KiGB + Boycott Advance on a USB, plus their roms.

The most common ways are re-installing Mac (I don't have the CD),
erasing/formating (it might not do anything), and making a new
account (I can't create one as when I try it doesn't appear), so try
to not to mention them. Help is appreciated.

And, yes, I'm a returning member, after the whole simple NES sprite
changing stuff.

My suggestion would be to ask for help on a forum where a majority of the population actually knows something about MacOS, rather than one where a majority of the tiny population are either ignorant of or actively loathe Macs. (I'm not trying to start an OS fanboy war here, I'm just pointing out that asking for help with a Mac here is about one step above asking on one of Microsoft's forums.)

Actually, I've seen in the archive that some admin wanted to
change everything here to be Mac exclusive. So, I thought I
try here first. If no body answers within three days, I guess
I have to go Apple (or Mac Rumors) for that.

You.. um... might want to check the date of that announcement.

I would recommend Tech Support Forum. I've had good luck there in the past with various issues and they have a board specifically for Mac related problems.

I'm not referring to how old that announcement was, it's a little less than 5 months ago, I'm specifically referring to what day the announcement was posted.

Our old friends are back, lol.

Yea, just it takes some minutes (maybe 15) without crashing, near the end it
does. It's a PowerMac 3.5 which came from 2002, you know. I'm tired of being
a Mac user, I love to get back to Windows. Sadly, I don't have the money for
that. Just all what I want here is the solution, I'll go to tech support later if still
no real help. And, anybody experienced those crashes while having some of the
emulators above?

Unfortunately I don't think there's a lot of people here with sufficient Mac experience.
