These applications have recently shown up in my processes list (via top), and I can't kill them. They're taking up a huge load of CPU and are making my fan go crazy.

What's up with this?

klogd is your kernel logger daemon, so you can't kill it. dd is a raw data copying utility. It shouldn't be in your processes unless you're formatting a partition or something.

dd is a process and I am not formatting anything. klogd isn't much of an issue now, and neither is dd , it was just a surprise to see dd in there.
