  1. Hi Marcos, No. As I said, I'm trying to avoid that as the product is already installed. I just transferred it across to my licence in my ESET account. It has updated to a new version since I transferred it, but the logo persists. Can I do an over the top install with the installer? I assumed I would have to remove EIS and reinstall if I went down that route?
  2. Last year I bought a new laptop, which came with EIS pre-installed and licensed by the vendor for an initial period. When opening EIS, the window has the logo of the PC vendor in the lower left corner. On expiration of the initial licence period, I transferred the licence to an unused seat on my own subscription, which is all good, but I thought that the vendor's logo might disappear after the licence change, yet it hasn't. I know it's not the end of the world, but is there a way of removing the logo from the product without a complete uninstallation and reinstall? I'm guessing there must be a logo file in a folder somewhere, and perhaps a registry entry that could be removed?
  3. Hello, I have a new laptop running W10 Pro, configured with local user accounts and bitlocker encryption enabled. Bitlocker is also configured to require a pre-boot PIN. In the circumstances, is there any point in enabling Eset Anti-Theft? As I understand it, EAT relies on the device having booted and a thief logging in to the phantom account. But if they can't boot the machine in the first place...
  4. I can't help except to say that I had exactly the same error messages during automatic update to EIS v13.2.18.0 today. Everything seems to be working OK with no more error messages after a reboot. I have edevmon.sys file version installed in System32\drivers, but whether this is the current file version I can't say.
  5. Thank you @Peter Randziak Everything is still normal so far. If it happens again I will let you know.
  6. Thanks @Peter Randziak, So far, everything is normal since the reboot. If it happens again I'll do as you suggest, but I thought I ought to mention it in case there was an unknown issue with the new release, having found a similar post in the NOD32 AV forum. @Marcos, files attached. Thank you. AppCrash_ekrn_exe.zip
  7. This is all I can find. It's from 24 hours ago and I don't know if it's relevant as according to the Eset log EIS successfully updated at 09:48 hrs today. The application update to was completed at 08:01 yesterday, around 7 hours before this log was created. I have collected the files from C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ referred to below and can send them to Eset if required.

  8. Rebooted. Eset has just successfully checked for and completed an update . ekrn.exe now 125,000 KB memory in use, 0% CPU. Will see how it goes.
  9. Eset updated to v13.2.16.0 yesterday and last completed a successful definition update over 4 hours ago. Wondering why my PC has slowed to a crawl I opened Resource Monitor to find that ekrn.exe is using over 12GB of physical memory, currently 93% memory usage and still increasing. The Eset tray icon is continuously spinning and the program has been reporting "Module update in progress" for at least the last hour that I am aware of, possibly since the last update check over 4 hours ago for all I know. I have tried clicking "Cancel Update" but it is not responding. Current stats for ekrn.exe are 132,933 threads 18.4% CPU Memory 12,419,948 KB Going to try restarting my PC now...
  10. No, as I say all updates have completed without any errors since the end of June. I'm afraid I deleted all the notifications that I has, as there have been no problems for three weeks now, and my mailbox was filling up with successful notifications due to the bug in the current version. It is interesting though that my daughter's laptop also has an SSD.
  11. I doubt it's of any help, but since my previous post in this thread on 24th June, I had a flurry of these differential update notifications from her laptop over a period of 3 days, seemingly affecting every download attempt, but since then nothing untoward at all. Since she has changed nothing on her laptop, I suspect some kind of external influence must have been involved.
  12. Well, my daughter appears not to have had any further reports on her laptop since first experiencing the issue in a flurry over 2 days of attempted Eset updates. She has a standard W10 laptop with a single SSD partition and a default W10 installation, so I find the discussion relating to moved swap files and temp folders a bit of a red herring, at least in her case. @Samoreen are you still experiencing the issue? It seems to have stopped in my daughter's case, so the circumstances suggest some outside influence to me?
  13. I have just found this topic as the result of a search on error notifications that I have just started receiving from my daughter's laptop: 24/06/2018 15:29:48 - During execution of Update on the computer xxx-LAPTOP, the following event occurred: Error occurred when applying differential update to base file. This has only started today, but so far I have received several notifications by email from her Eset AV. Unfortunately she is halfway around the world from me (hence the time discrepancy between the pasted notification text and my posting time) and not computer savvy, so I have no way of attempting to diagnose or obtain any logs from her machine, but I thought it worth mentioning in any case.
