    Hi,

    I installed the 20MB + of Microsoft updates this morning. Since then after every reboot I'm getting excessive CPU usage.

    'Startup scanning in Progress' is the message.

    Scheduler has 2 instances of "Automatic startup file check" ticked, one for user logon and 1 for Successful update of the virus sigs.

    ekrn.exe is sitting at 50% min and peaking at 99% - it's been doing that for 3+ hours now. Multiple reboots.

    I've upgraded and updated to 4.2.58.3 64 bit edition (I was running 4.0.x 32-bit until about an hour ago and decided to update to the 4.2.x 643 bit eidition to see if it would make a difference, it has not).

    Update Module is 1031
    Virus 5358

    I'm currently Running Windows 7 64-bit SP1 (Beta) - fully patched as of this morning.

    Temporarily disabling the virus scan also fails to stop it doing this.

    Any suggestions?

    Yes, read the forum before posting :)

    Two other threads today are discussing this - on the same page as your posting.

    thanks for point that out! does that make feel all superior now?

    I saw those after posting mine only because while posting mine and accumulating the required details requested that I then saw the common problem with those threads... that being 64-bit OS Automatic file start-up issues, neither posts topics mentioned those, I'm hardly doing to open every post on the 1st 2 pages just to avoid being chastised by you.
