I am an Eset newbie. I've been looking around for a new personal security suite and ESS came highly recommended. I uninstalled Trend Micro and installed ESS 4.0.437. The computer is a new lenovo T500, 32-bit XP SP3 with max RAM. After updating the DB I rebooted. After reboot the ekrn.exe process consumes 50% cpu and ~50MB on this dual core. Stopping the real time file system protection brings the ekrn.exe back down to earth. Restarting it sends the process back to 50%. There are no scanning jobs running; I haven't really done much (if any) customization. Not the kind of demo I was hoping for. Anyone have any ideas to correct this condition?
