    After upgrading to v.3 and finishing a virus definition update, BWmeter was showing constant downloading @1KB to 55KB/s, so I got Tcpview.exe from Microsofts website to see what could be the culprit. Lowe and behold it was ekrn.exe going crazy. Me thinks this is not good for NOD32, as I cannot waste bandwidth like this. I set the scheduler to run the update once a week on Saturdays. I have no idea what it could be downloading. any ideas on what the program is doing?

    Ekrn.exe has 10-15 established connection open all the time. What's happening? I'd understand if checks updates once an hour, but all the time!
