System overloaded

I have very strange performance on my lap-top after upgrade to 4.4.1. When I 
start Kontakt (may be due to akonadi running), the system gets overloaded with 
two CPUs (Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 /2 GB) running between 75 and 98% (!), and 
physical RAM with more than 700 MiB. The system works but VERY-VERY slow for 
about 30 mins, and then all calms down. 

BTW Nepomuk strigi servise was suspended as I initially thought this might be 
the issue. 

Further to that is that I can monitor this load only through a system monitor 
widget. If I open System Activity windows, I have plenty of processes running 
with the most "heavy" of only 2% of CPU usage!  All this on a DELL inspiron 
1525 with kubuntu 9.10.

Any ideas how I can solve this? The system became slow and sometimes 
overheated. Thanks.
