how to disable cpu monitor ?

I'm running slack 9.1 with the 2.6.2 kernel, and recently the mbd thermometer went out and seems to read much higher than it should. All I would like to do is disable the cpu monitor so I stop receiving the messages
CPU#0:Runing in modulated clock mode
CPU#0:Temperature above threshold
I usually get that as a pop-up text editor window, usually when I'm compiling a program. Then after I get it the console is basically useless, as I can type, but it doesnt actually run the command I enter.

Ive reseated the heatsink to my cpu, reapplied thermal grease, etc... if it is the cpu actually overheating, I'm fine with that and when it goes out it goes out, Ive done everything I can do.

So, how do I disable the cpu thermometer, or at least stop receiving the messages ?
