    when I want to download a pdf, IE8 freezes on Win XP Sp3 and Nod32 starts using 100% CPU and even if I end task on IE8, Nod32 won't let go of 100% CPU usage until I reboot

    I am unable to kill the ekrn.exe 100% process, it says denied

    the url is

    click the Policy Booklet download, the file is only 2 MB

    it downloads fine in FF and Chrome, but when using IE8, it kills Nod32 and the PC as a result
