    Have you tried, Safe boot?

    Use safe mode to isolate issues with your Mac - Apple Support

    Also, you may want to turn off some of your start up items? In System Preferences > User & Groups > Login Items.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    I have been having terrible kernel_task memory issues lately.
    What do you mean by "issues?" How is this actually affecting your computer use? Is it slow, stopped, what? What tells you that you have these issues? I did notice that your internal drive is really quite full, you might try moving some things off to an external to make more free space.

    The issues are I have only 3 or 2 % of idle space in the CPU graph, and as a result, when I try to record music, it gets all messed up.

    I'll try booting in safe mode. Let's say I do that and the problem disappears.....how do I begin figuring out which apps it might be?

    As far as hard drive space, yeah, I'll clear some up. It can't help.

    There is always a brisk discussion about the minimum Free Space you should have on the Mac's Internal Drive (an SSD in your case).

    Some say 10%, others 20%; but I think everyone would accept that having just under 3% of free disk space is way too small for normal working of the SSD and the macOS.

    I am simply endorsing Jake's remark on the same subject. In practical terms, you need to get at least 45-50GB off your Internal SSD. Some would argue a lot more than that.

    Apart from having a large number of Login Items (mentioned by Bob), no major issues are being detected. Thus clearing 50GB++ off your SSD may be all that is needed.

    Sounds good. I'll try. FWIW, Im pretty sure my drive is not SSD. Not sure if that helps diagnosing anything.

    Your report says it's SSD. I would also endorse Bob's suggestion in Post #3. Use the "-" button to delete some of your login stuff that maybe you don't need loaded at login. All of that stuff takes up memory right from the beginning.

    Wow! Apart from the previous suggestion I would hazard a guess that MacKeeper may be the cause of at least some of your problems. How did you remove it and are you sure you removed it all?

    1) Not enough hard drive space
    2) Way more applications/daemons/startups/extensions than the average user has. (more things running means kernel_task will be larger)
    3) A Samsung Brew USB modem with poorly written software that is continuously respawning (restarting itself with a new connection ID)
    4) you've tried deleting some apps by dragging to the trash instead of running the uninstaller, leaving junk (which may or may not be still running)

    I wonder if it's MacKeeper cause I've had this much hard drive space for a while but havent had this problem.

    That said.....

    1 - I reduced the number of start up extensions. Anything else I can stop vis-a-vis damons?

    3 - I am not even using a Samsung brew modem. How do I stop that software?

    4 - I deleted MacKeeper with MalwareBytes. I am trying this github thing but it isnt working. I've saved the file on my MBP as "mackeeper.sh" and when I put in the terminal "chmod +x mackeeper.sh
" then i get the answer "No such file or directory"

    It seems like there might also be some potentially conflicting/extraneous stuff there as well. For example: In the Cleanup section of the reportt there are a couple of items listed for LastPass. In the Safari Extensions section an extension for OnePassword is shown. Things like that might not be conflicting with each other but having both leaves some extraneous files around.

    So, I started up in safe mode.....and the kernel problem persisted. I cleaned up nearly 10% of the HD and turned off some of the background apps too.

    Any thoughts on what the issue might be if it also happened when I was in safe mode?

    (Thanks so much for the advice. Truly. I'd be screwed right now without this!)

    The one strange thing I see in the second Etrecheck report is the write speed to the drive. The report says: Write speed: 111 MB/s Read speed: 1698 MB/s. It was more in the first report, about 290 MB/s, but that's still low for an SSD. The read is find, but that is a terrible write speed for an SSD. My SSD, for example, shows 650 to 750 MB/s. The read speed is similar to yours. Those write speeds might be a symptom of something wrong with the SSD itself, or it could be a byproduct of just having too much on the drive.

    And can you elaborate on the "kernel problem" a bit more? I know you said if you record music it's messed up, but what does that mean? Messed up how? Do you get any error messages? Other than the write speed, I don't see anything too far out of whack on the reports.

    When the kernel issues are happening, the music has latency issues because the hard drive is just moving slow, so if I record live, it gets wonky. When the kernel issues are happening, everything just slows down. I open a finder window and it happen slowly and in steps (first the outline...then the words come in), or I open another tab in Chrome and it takes forever.

    I still think the problem might just be malware only because it's the same week I downloaded All2MP3 which gave me MacKeeper, and even though I've uninstalled both of those, it just seems to me the most likely scenario. I did run Malwarebytes and nothing happened.
