    The original issue:

    I basically traced the source of my 100% CPU usage to 2 files related to the AoE3 game, happy to have solved my issue I contacted an ESET representative.

    How long exactly is shortly? I've found a problem in your software, you found a fix, what's the holdup?


    To re-iterate again, there's a problem with advanced heuristics scanning these files that creates a loop.

    I was told by our developers that the problem would be fixed within a few days, but actually it turns out that it will take more time, perhaps they are making further changes to AH so they will release it at once.

    Update: an update to advanced heuristics module has been released, those 2 files are scanned now much quicker.

    Can you tell me if this fix will apply to all files packed this way or if it simply a "whitelist" for these 2 files?

    Certainly the fix is not related only to these 2 files. Otherwise it could have been fixed within a minute.

    Well I have everything turned on and my Vista system is much more stable, I did an entire scan without it sticking on anything. I still have a problem with a long bootup with advanced heuristics/runtime packers for real-time turned on. I'll look into if any files are causing this. I'll also test out my XP machine which was the serious case.

    Thank you.
