    I enabled the idle state scan to see what it does. It's hammering 25% cpu while I'm trying to use my PC and slowing everything down noticeably. I assumed as soon as I moved the mouse or keyboard it would pause, but... o_O Cheers for any info.

    Oddly, "no background jobs using system resources" shows in the home/basic overview area, but task manager reports eset is constantly using 25-28%

    Has turning the idle scan option on crashed part of eset? :eek:
