    Let's face the facts here - your kernel is using an excessive amount of CPU power right now. It should be using nowhere near what it's using here. Not that my machine is the perfect specimen but you're using nearly 32x as many CPU resources as I am for the kernel process and my machine is probably fairly "average" in terms of what I do with it.

    Unfortunately, determining what is affecting this isn't easy since a lot interfaces with the kernel (think of it as the brain of OS X). It's not like a simple app that can simple be closed. However, you can start to figure out what might be interfering with it if you start thinking about what might be messing with it. More often than not, it's something hardware related and by that, I mean some piece of hardware and its software interface are acting weird. Have you plugged any new hardware into your Mac as of late?

    If you do not have that file, than it can not cause this slowness :-)
    Have you started the process of elimination as suggested in an earlier post ?

    Flash is a separate process and would not be hitting the kernel this hard. If Flash was acting out of control, it would be your browser or a special contained Flash process in Activity Monitor.

    Just for my understanding .... where in Opera ( the web browser ) did you switch off flash ?
    It may help other members if they run into a similar problem .

    Have you tried using another browser instead of Opera? I found Opera to be rather cumbersome and slow when compared to Safari and Chrome. Besides, it's always a good idea to have more than one browser on hand for those times when problems occur.

    Have you thought of updating the Flash plug-in for Opera?
