  1. I got the same thing, nonstop 'searching for updates on this computer.' I read the following and all the comments in the section below it https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2016/03/16/windows-10-stop-upgrade/ ..and disabled Win updates since I suspect its trying to download win 10 on me.

I opened WinPatrol and noticed ESET wasn't under the programs in the startup tab. WinPatrol lets me add any .exe program into startup. I put
  4. To Properly use Task Manager, right click on bottom screen bar and select Task Manager, then select the Processes tab at the top, then scroll to the bottom of the screen and check off "Show processes from all users." if you miss the last step the 2 ESET processes may not appear. I had this same problem where ESET wasn't starting up. I have a great Windows tool that I found in a geek forum a long time ago. It's called WinPatrol and it watches over my whole system and prevents companies like Adobe from stuffing my startup folder with programs that slow my computer to a standstill. I started
