    Hi there,

    ESET 3.0 latest version 64bit. On Vista Ultimate.

    I sent an ticket to ESET about this. But will ask here while I am waiting for ESET to respond.

    For some time now, I have to disable Web protection if I want to download .ZIP or .EXE files. When the download progress get to 99%, it get stuck and nothing happens. I see CPU utilisation increase but after 10 mins I cancel and decide to temporary disable the Web protection to be able to download the file.

    Any one had a similar problem?

    This would happen if an archive contains many files that take time to emulate (executable/dll) or parse (text files, usually large logs). If you could provide a link to such a file I'd check it out.

    Try this file :

    ~Direct download of unknown executable file removed - Ron~

    On a side note, I think i've found the problem. Found alot of nod temporary files in Windows\Temp folder. By deleteing all of them I was able to download zip files agains.

    Hi Marcos,

    I have one for you. Pls download XYPlorer.exe ( file manager ).

    NOD32 has a problem of almost causing a crash when right-click or even opening up the directory containing the file. This has happened many times whenever there is an update and that I want to move the file to another directory.

    Yes, you are right. When I extract .exe file from archive, ekrn.exe starts work on 99% CPU. When I end 7zFM.exe, everything continues fine. The same thing occured, when file had been moving or copying.
