    Just renewed my license - Fresh install of Windows 7 Home premium x64. Got Google Chrome running, previous to installing Eset Nod32 x64 Antivirus, all was fine, downloads finish fine, no freeze at all. Now literally after installing Eset, I have just gone to download some things, for example, CCleaner, it now freezes for like ten seconds after completion, showing 0 secs/0% left - pretty much what it used to do when I used to use Firefox before this fresh install.

    o_O

    ps. and theres a lovely 100% cpu spike still present

    We'll have a look at CCleaner. There's probably a larger file inside that takes time to get emulated due to the runtime packer used.

    Look at your Google Chrome setup and /or extensions, I did a fresh Win 7 installation over the weekend with IE as a default broswer with out-of-the-box settings for EAV

    There we no noticeable download speed issues.

    Post back your information from SpeedTest.net There are links to post Forum Format posts, unless it's against ~TOS~

    hello and thanks

    it is not a download speed issue as such, more of the file checking eset carries out.

    the larger the file the longer and more severe the lockup/cpu spike.

    yes it's a feature of eset. MY solution pause and then restart and the download finishes.

    thanks

    its no just ccleaner and no other AV suites/products have this issue and I'm sure you are aware a large amount of users also experience this problem.

    needs to be fixed tbh

    The CCleaner installer contains 245 files, including other sfx installers. The whole archive is scanned in about 10 seconds. Only 4 of them took about 200 ms to get scanned (Yahoo toolbar files), the others were scanned much faster.
