I downloaded Mavericks when it first came out and it was no problem. Within the last week or so, my mac has become EXTREMELY slow.

Solutions I have tried: -Resetting the PRAM/NVRAM -Resetting the SMC -Backing up data with time machine and reinstalling Mavericks

Even while running a single chrome web page, I check the Activity Monitor and Kernal_Tasks is using anywhere from 76% to 1,000% cpu usage.

Here is a picture from Activity Monitor where Kernal_Tasks is using 76% cpu usage: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2ustudc&s=8

Here is a picture from Activity Monitor where Kernal_Tasks is using over 1,000% cpu usage: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2zycrva&s=8#.U_0kTbxdUjw

Keep in mind, these images were taken only while running a few pages in Chrome. I've searched around and a lot of people are having this problem, but there aren't really solutions going around.

EDIT: My internet is really fast, there's something wrong with my computer I think.

Please someone help me :(
