So if you use Activity Monitor to list processes in order of CPU usage, which one(s) are using the most CPU time?
Recently i have had very high cpu usage on my mac with very little running. Right now activity monitor says the system is using 67% and i am only running crome and activity monitor. I have a newer macbook pro maybe a month or two old. It is running lion. I have run some legit spyware/malware scans they didn't find anything but im willing to try another program. Also in safe mode the CPU usage is normal. I would like to avoid reinstalling although i do have a lion disk to do so with. Thank you in advance for any help.
