Glad I came cross this forum. Would have never associated this issue with Parallel, let alone the Toolkit feature. Especially since I've had Parallel installed for over 4 years and never had this issue. In any case, I went into Toolkit preferences and unchecked "open toolkit at startup", performed a restart, and everything is running smooth now. No "bsdtar" listed. Got my quiet MAC book pro back lol. Thanks fam.
