Atom Helper kills CPU


#1

The CPU on my MacBook Pro is almost totally taken up by the Atom Helper. This happens if I start the program without any files open. If I don’t use the app it drops again, but as soon as I try to do something I fires back up.

I tried to:
reinstall the programm
reset atom to factory defaults
cleared saved status

The problem also appears in safe mode

Hope you can help me

Can you share which version of Atom you’re running?

atom -v
