    It looks like you have several applications communicating via HTTP while the HTTP traffic is redirected through ekrn.exe for scanning.

    Hello magex47,

    EKRN.exe acts as a proxy so it can scan network traffic for malicious activity. Because of this, all programs that talk to the network go through EKRN and so it appears that it is using the bandwidth.

    Ohhh I understand now. I didn't know ESET scans that kind of stuff o_O. Another reason it's the best I guess.
