It might not be this stuff that fries your Mac, but some sound  
component in combination with the latest system updates. I had to  
remove Perian (for which I used a complicated procedure), and apply  
Combo 10.5.8 (and then do a permissions repair).

You might try killing off coreaudiod. Do say
   ps -ax | grep audio
so see the process number <pid> of coreaudiod, and then do 'sudo kill  
<pid>'. As it is a daemon, run by launchd (see 'man launchctl'), it  
will restart immediately. You may also try putting it to sleep, and  
awaken again.
