    I have installed on XP SP3 the ESS 4.0.314.0 and when the application is running the proccess ekrn.exe consumes 95-100% of the cpu power.Because of that the pc is almost stalled... Do you have any suggestions?

    its due to scheduled automatic file checking.

    u can remove scheduled checking in Tools > sheduler. But not recommended.
    If ur pc is old , u can use eset v3 which is lighter than v4. Currently im using v3 because my pc is 9yrs old.:rolleyes:
