    Have a look at Activity Monitor ( Applications / Utilities / ) and select All Processes and sort by CPU to see what the culprit may be.

    image below uses sorting by CPU as an example

    Also use iStat Pro to monitor temperatures and fan speed.

    I don't know that process, haven't found any valuable information about in a quick www search, though that process does not run on my Macs. As it seems to be from your user account, what other applications do you run? Some scripting tools for Unix or similar OS maybe?
    If that is NOT the case, a "force quit / avslutt prosess" should work. Take a look at your login items too, maybe it is set to startup that way.

    Btw:

    Thanks for the help everyone! :D
    It works now!

    But is there a list of things that are safe to kill? Like things I can reopen anytime I want to? :)
