Last week, I got four kernel panics on my laptop, and got pretty stressed out over them. I didn't know why that was happening. I thought that reinstalling macOS with the data still on the SSD wouldn't work, and would still throw up kernel panics, so earlier today I erased the SSD, deleted everything off the computer, and installed a fresh copy of macOS Catalina 10.15.2.
After reinstalling macOS, I set up my account and some of my other apps like Chrome, Discord, the Office 365 apps (through my school's subscription to Office 365) and Spotify, and so far I haven't gotten a fifth kernel panic. I think freshly installing macOS Catalina 10.15.2 after erasing the SSD and erasing the data drive through Disk Utility really helped.
I still don't know what was causing the kernel panics on my previous install, but I think it's all fixed and I can use my laptop properly now. Being able to use my laptop again makes it feel like I just scored a touchdown in college football, or in the National Football League (haha).
I am really afraid that YT will go up in flames because of COPPA.
