Ok i had to reinstall my osx due to me messing it up :angel:

I have the same problem. Kernal_task took about 70% CPU usage and i thought its because of my AMD processor.


I have 2 dual AMD opteron 270 processor and in one of my processor kernal_task took about 70%-80%. I was not really happy seeing this happening. I had the windows sharing turn on.


So, other than windows sharing is there any other problem that would trigger kernal_cpu to hog the cpu that much.
