DirectoryService high CPU utilization
Authored by: freedomfries on Aug 29, '12 12:03:13PM

I was having this problem with Directory Service- only while disconnected from the internet.

I solved this problem by looking at the programs that were running second high CPU. The Google Chrome Helper ! I uninstalled Chrome and no more 6000 rpm fans.

Chrome discontinued updates for OS X 10.5 and that's when I had to stop using it because it was always crashing on me. I had completely overlooked this at first with my Directory Service error but since I was no longer running Chrome, this seemed like BS.

Now I consistently use Firefox 15.0 and all is well.
