    Hi,
    This threat is certainly due to USB key infected...
    You would get rid of that pet using the following tool :
    Try a google search and you will find all needed help about that tool

    To put this in scale, judging from your total commit charge in task manager you have 2gb memory physical in your system. Task manager is reporting the nod32 kernel process using ~40mb, but realistically about 6-10mb of that is going to be sharable addressing space that can be paged out if a game or something needs it. Worse case scenario is that your AV product is using 2% of available physical memory, ~1.5% is more realistic. Unless you do something that is extremely memory intensive and pushes your system right to the edge of 100% physical memory usage but not going over so you aren't thrashing the swap, you aren't going to see a performance difference from "slimming" Nod32.

    What is far more concerning is that the ekern.exe service is eating up all available cycles on one of your cpu cores, most likely constantly scanning/blocking something that is re-infecting your system. As was pointed out, the most likely source is your USB key (or whatever else is mapped to E: ) and if you correct that you will free up your second CPU core and performance should be restored.

    A log from ESET SysInspector (downloadable from ESET's website) would probably shed more light. Send it to samples[at]eset.com with this thread's url in the email subject please.

    Hello,
    You"re welcome... Now regarding your last question : I can't help you except to suggest you to try various tools to help you to discover this remaining threat... I suggest you GMER, and maybe to try some various online scanner...
    Good luck !!!!


    Oh, just one last thing... For every people that could read that kind of post...
    I beleive that we are currently encountering an increasing number of new kind of infections like smithfraud, navilog.... That are more exactly trojans / rootkits than spywares... And I'm surprised to see that most antivirus are now easily bypassed by those new kinds of threats... Some people are currently working hard to develop specifics cleaning tools but most antivirus detection are completely uneffective on such new threats... Why ?

    [OOps sorry for my poor english]
    Regards
