    apple.xpc.launchd[1] trying to start a service

    Installed new OS Mojave on Late 2012 mac mini~the above is crushing my memory because it cant start what it wants.

    This continues:

    Nov 8 14:45:35 Mac-Mini-2176 com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (0jHYk[2157]): Service exited with abnormal code: 126
    Nov 8 14:45:35 Mac-Mini-2176 com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (0jHYk): Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.

    in Processes HDADTIsZ is sucking all my RAM then crushing Swap Memory...3 days into this help appreciated...thank you!

    Oh...for whatever reason unable to boot into SAFE even replaced wireless keyboard with wired but no success...ran first aid on disk utility but no success...and I did update to 10.14.1 but no change..

    The installation seems complete and at start up things work very well but that Process HDADTIsZ takes over and things get slowed down. I've uninstalled some apps that have popped up as issues on Activity Monitor like Garmin and Carbonite but no change..

    No problems before this OS update 3 days ago...would restart this mac every 5-6 weeks when I'd see any Swap Memory...

    C'mon....help me out here..
    --- Post Merged, Nov 8, 2018 ---
    considering Recovery mode via time machine but sort of seems like a little glitch...won't be long before I have to restart...

    Looks like you may have malware. "0jHYk" and "HDADTIsZ" are not processes that should be running on your Mac, yet alone using a ton of CPU. I'd go back to Mojave 10.14.1; and if this is still happening unload the launchd jobs.

    Open Finder, press CMD+SHIFT+G and look at the following locations:
    /Library/LaunchDaemons/
    ~/Library/LaunchDaemons/
    /Library/LaunchAgents
    ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    Do any files in there seem strange? You'll likely see third party software you've installed and this is fine, but if you see anything odd or strange, please unload it!.

    You can unload it by deleting the com.*.plist files in there and rebooting your Mac.

    in addition: double click onto the process name in activity monitor shows related files and ports

    Thanks for your help...sometime soon I'll try Mojave again though El Capitan is serving all my needs nicely.
