SystemUIServer using all CPU, overheating

SystemUIServer is lately using all of my CPU. But other times, like right now, kernel_task uses 87% while SystemUIServer is using 43%, hogging all of my Mac's CPU and then some.

Some details:

-Macbook Pro 13inch mid-2010 -Using Yosemite latest version -Computer overheated a few times in the past month. It is definitely slower since it started to happen -I disabled automatic date and time because I read that it can affect SystemUIServer usage

What should I do, aside from going to the GeniusBar? I was hoping I could solve the problem myself and save a few bucks.
