Your Mac's Specs
Macbook 13" 2.1 GHz
I have a Macbook, and I installed an app called Self Control yesterday, which (I'm presuming) made my laptop kernel panic a few times and I couldn't open the program without a kernel panic so I quickly deleted the app.

However, since then, I've had a pulsing CPU reading from iStat, and it's causing my laptop to momentarily lag every 10 seconds - annoying when I'm writing/watching a video!

I THINK it's CrashReport that's eating up the CPU, and looking at the system log I can see that it just keeps restarting and restarting which is why my CPU keeps going up and down.

This is just a sample of what it says over a few minutes:

How do I stop this and what does it mean?
Thank you!
(PS I've tried force quitting ReportCrash in Activity Monitor but to no avail :()

Did the program come with an Uninstaller?

If so, you may have to reinstall and then uninstall--apparently deleting the APP wasn't sufficient.

Might also try a PRAM reset and cold shutdown/restart.

Not as far as I'm aware.. I couldn't even open the program to uninstall it so was forced to stick it in the trash :/

What would a PRAM reset do exactly? I've just googled how to do it so I'm gonna try it in a minute.

Haha yeah, I won't be downloading that app again! I emailed the makers of it and they are adamant that it has never caused any kernel panics. Hmmm :p
