I did a google search for macbook pro fan runs a lot and found this page:

https://discussions.apple.com/threa...tart=0&tstart=0

So I opened Activity monitor and found this:

Killed the HP Product Research process and fans quieted down. Damn. so evil. I almost feel like a suit could be filed. Excessive wear on my computer, collecting information unawares about my activity or whatever they are "researching" and excessive energy use from this BS process.

Do I need to use Terminal to find the HP programs?

Fuck, this thing is widespread? Idiot programmers. And no. Click "Sample Process" and you'll see a large block of text, where one of the first lines contains the process' executable path.
