Nod32krn.exe is the kernel service, nod32kui.exe is the user interface.
If kui is just the interface, then how come when you quit the control panel the kernel is still running?
Not sure what you are asking here, but it would make no sense if closing the GUI should stop the kernel service. Also when you quit the GUI what actually happen is that it's minized to systray so it's not actually closed. That's why nod32kui.exe is still running after you quit the GUI.
The "Hide" option is what minimizes it to the system tray; and when I quit it I get the following message:
Quitting the program will disable virus warning. Do you want to quit the program anyway?
That simply means you will not get the big red warning screen. nod32krn.exe is still running and will continue to stop any malware.
Does quitting the control panel serve any purpose?
Not as far as I'm concerned. It may release some memory but not much.
Take a look at the help file and see if it clears some things up in your mind.
