After updating MacOS from 10.8.1 to 10.8.2, it's heating obvious.

I do nothing, but chrome is stopping at the page of reader. Temp is 77 DC and more. Why, why my 2012 mid MBP 13's temp is higher than before?

Why not run "top" from the Terminal command line and see what's causing the CPU to be so busy that you could fry an egg on the keyboard? – Michael Dautermann Oct 8 '12 at 6:09
Thanks . The egg is the ParentalController, stopping all users' parentalcontroller, temp is back to 50 DC again. – Tintin Oct 9 '12 at 8:56

You should use Activity Monitor to find out which processes have a lot of CPU usage. If you find and process which seems unusually high, please post it here so we can provide feedback.

Thanks a lot . The problem is the Parental Controller. From 10.8.1 to 10.8.2 ,and now 10.8.3 the problem is still here. By looking the "top" command , I stopped all users' parentalcontroller ,then the temp was get down.
