    Hi all :)

    Since installing the latest update for Snow Leopard my MBP has been overheating, always when there's nothing but Safari and Mac Messenger running!

    Any idea what it could be? :eek:

    What do you mean by overheating? Does it shut down?

    Have you taken a look at Activity Monitor to see what process might hog up the CPU - don't forget to select "Show All Processes"?

    Have you taken a look at the CPU temperature via iStat (or something similar)?
