    I tried running Sysinspector (for the first time) on my Win7 64-bit computer. When it had been loading for many minutes and nothing was happening I tried stopping it by hitting Esc and telling it to stop. It wouldn't - "Access denied".

    I rebooted the computer and found Sysrescue had appeared in my start menu.

    Is this normal behaviour?

    No, the automatic system startup scan is fine.

    This is what happens:

    1. I start Sysinspector from the start menu.
    2. I see "Performing loading sequence.."
    3. That progress bar completes.
    4. Nothing else happens, even after 15 minutes or more.
    5. Task manager shows CPU usage about 50% Sysinspector.exe
    6. I hit Esc, and Sysinpsector invites me to stop it.
    7. Nothing happens when I click yes - still 50% CPU
    8. Try ending process in Task Manager: get "Operation could not be completed - access denied"

    Only recourse is to hard reboot the computer.

    This looks a pretty buggy application to me!

    Hello jongie,

    That is because of the built in protection, so that malware can not easily kill essential processes of Eset Antivirus to attack your computer. Other security vendors do the same thing.
    It's normal behavior.
