    Hey everyone,
    I'm having an issue where my widgets won't load, and my "dashboard client" takes up 99.8% of CPU constantly.

    It's getting annoying because my computer is running really hot because the CPU is always being maxed out. I've tried the following:

    •Closing all widgets
    •Restarting computer
    •Clearing Cache
    •Quitting dashboard client in activity monitor (it just comes back)
    •Repairing permissions

    Any help?

    Thanks

    IIRC if you force quit it in activity monitor it won't reopen until you open it, so if you can live without dashboard (which I do) then I think that may be your best route.

    I tried force-quitting it, and it still came back.
