Hello Everyone, I manage a network of about 80 workstations (Windows XP SP3) running the Novell Client (For eDirectory Authentication); I recently began a ZenWorks deployment, and have noticed that ekrn.exe has begun to go crazy - and take all the system resources on those machines. I saw a post earlier by edwin3333, that stated some exclusions needed to be added for NOD32 v4 but there was no explanation. We are running a mixed environment of v3 and v4 - and I am experiencing this behavior on both. I've always been pleased with performance from NOD32 in the past; are there any suggestions as to make ekrn.exe not work as hard? Thanks.
