I downloaded all the latest updated software with each crash.  It's not like you're in the App Store.  I don't bother backing up anything with the New El Capitan update because I plan on taking it in to best buy to get back Yosemite or Mavericks or even Lion at this point.   I don't know what it is but Since I've done the little work arounds it has helped but once I get out of Wifi range it'll become non-responsive and I'll have to start all over again.  Not having to reinstall is nice but still not solid enough of a laptop to take to the DJ area, anymore.  I'm using the wife's Acer at this point with Windows 10 and it seems to be a better OS than the latest update of MacOS.  All I know is Apple might be headed for a drop in customers if this keeps up.

Still having this issue. Nothing I've tried has solved this problem.
