    Hello! Sorry for my english, it's really bad. I hope I can explain in a clear. I use Windows XP SP3 with NOD32 v4.0.467 and I have noted that the process 'ekrn.exe' consumes lots of memory over time. When I turn on my PC, the consumption rate is 47 MB, but after more than 24 hours on, the consumption is close to 90 MB. There seems to be a progressive increase in memory consumption over time of use. I wonder if this is normal.

    Thank you.

    Just answer me, please. It is normal memory consumption increase over time? I think with version 3, this did not happen.

    Sorry for the English.

    Hello Marchetti87,

    Do you have a database, any big files or a large amount of emails? Please disable real-time scanning and reply with what the memory consumption is.

    Thank you,
    Richard
