I have an early 2008 MacBook Pro. Worked fine for the longest time, upgraded to mountain lion recently and noticed a big performance dip, so I upgraded my RAM from 4gb to 8. Recently after that, I tried to verify my disk and disk utility told me to boot into recovery mode to fix the issue, and I did. Since then, my computer has been running INSANELY slow. My CPU is always running at around 95%, without a single program running. I open up activity manager and the only process taking up a significant amount of CPU is InterCheck. It seems the main thing that triggers the problem is opening a browser window, whether its chrome or safari, it just sets it off. Any help?

MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2008), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 8gb RAM
