Buffalo's NASNavigator2 doesn't go support ML well, i am guessing it's the culprit of my Mac Air 2012 heating up problem.

from the attachment, which is a screen cap of the Activity Monitor, it uses up to 40% of CPU, while around 30ish usually. and for all the other apps together only use up to 5% CPU.

Now my CPU is 90 degree, i can't even put my lap top on my lap, i should rename it as fan-top instead.

I have tried to deleted the apps, but I don't know why after deleting the NASnavigator2, and after rebooting of the fan-top, when i turn on the Activity Monitor again, NASnavigator2 is still there! Still using up 40% of CPU, and the fan-top is still hot. I even tried to force-quit it, but it's still there.

DOes any one know how to solve this problem? i wanna get rid of the app!

i have tried on Terminal, but:


Lorentzs-MacBook-Air:~ lorentzMacbookAir$ kill -385
-bash: kill: 385: invalid signal specification

Lorentzs-MacBook-Air:~ lorentzMacbookAir$ killall nasnavigator2
No matching processes belonging to you were found

WHy?

----------

on the Activity Monitor, i double click the app, on the "Open Files and Ports " page, it says:

/

finally , by using Terminal , i force deleted
/Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/NasNavigator2.app/
(by typing the sudo command)

Now everything comes back to normal, CPU temperature back to 40ish degree,
and CPU usage back to 5%.

So, my conclusion is,
1) Do not install NASNavigator2 which issued before aug 2012 to your Mountain Lion, it doens 't support

2) NASNavigator2 uses up to 40% of CPU usage, which will a) seriously drain your battery, b) heat up your Mac to above 90 celsius degree.
