    So far I really love v3 except for one thing. I don't like ekrn.exe constantly connected to the internet. Why is this v2 did not do it?

    For reasons discussed in depth in several threads here, Eset changed their previous scanning methods and decided to use a local proxy to do NOD32's web filtering and email filtering. So ALL of the traffic for those protocols go through ekrn.exe...

    That explains why it is always connected to Online Armor, but it's always connected to cnet also. I'm a bit concerned about that connection. Thanks a lot for the heads up though.
