    I've read a lot of posts re. too high CPU usage - however I have a question (for which I was unable to locate an answer to searching this forum) regarding relative low CPU usage when doing an OnDemand Computer Scan ....

    I have a DualCore AMD Athlon X2 5600+ with 2 GB RAM running Vista Ultimate - and I've noticed that the CPU usage when performing an OnDemand Computer Scan directly from the GUI (i.e. I believe it it NOT a background scan) never exceeds 50% o_O
    I.e. it looks like ESS is not optimized for multi-core CPU's .... I would expect the scan to be done rather quicker if utilizing all available system resources (dynamically of course ....) - or have I just missed some config ??
