Hello!
I am running a Mac Book Pro 2.66 Ghz Intel Core i7. 8gb 1067MHz DDR3. OS X 10.9.1
Having just installed Mavericks, I've had a bunch of problems. One of them has been a new thing called kernel_task which can take up most my CPU from time to time.
I read a previous discussion and it seemed that some audio software had been the issue for a few people. However I do not recall installing or uninstalling any audio software. @linc_davis kindly offered up a diagnostics check, am hoping he or some other kind soul can make sense of the following terminal dumps please so I can find out which app is bringing me down!
Looking at the below, I certainly havent used or wanted the BB Rim software for a long time. Will try and download that and uninstall it again. Little snitch I know and use. and same with the mouse driver Evoluent, backblaze, peer guardian, macKeeper, and google. The others I don't recognise.
Thank you very much!

Start by following these instructions to uninstall MacKeeper. They have been tested with the most recent version of MacKeeper (v 2.8). Earlier versions than the one released in 2012 require more extensive work to uninstall all its components.
Then, uninstall Trusteer Rapport. Your Mac cannot operate properly with it installed.
The fastest way to take an exquisitely designed and painstakingly engineered Mac and make it run like a steaming pile of dung is to install and use "cleaning" or "security" products like MacKeeper. Never install such junk on a Mac.
If you used MacKeeper to encrypt any files or folders, use MacKeeper to un-encrypt them first.
Quit the MacKeeper app if it is running.
Open your Applications folder: Using the Finder's Go menu, select Applications.
Drag the MacKeeper icon from your Applications folder (not the Dock) to the Trash.
You will be asked to authenticate (twice):
You do not need to provide a reason for uninstalling it:
Just click the Uninstall MacKeeper button. You will be asked to authenticate again.
After it uninstalls you may empty the Trash and restart your Mac. All that will remain is an inert log file that does nothing but occupy space on your hard disk.
