    How it possible to make your programm work properly without distracting entire system?
    Is uninstall is the best solution?

    Do you see ekrn utilizing the cpu even if no scan is running? Does disabling real-time protection (for a test) make a difference?

    Marcos, I think the question should be how much memory are they seeing being used - and how much do they have on the machine.

    My ekrn.exe is rising - now 114,736k - if I ran out of memory, I would see the CPU spike as it used virtual disk - there is a memory leak I think...

    See this thread I started where I got "could not allocate memory" during updates...
